VbE-Members Conference, Euston, London
Our first National VbE Member-Schools’ Conference will be a brilliant event for values-based schools!

Having secured a wonderful venue, we are determined that you will have a fantastic day and will leave inspired, refreshed and rejuvenated!

Speakers will be confirmed as they are booked, but we do know that Dr Neil Hawkes and Jane Hawkes will deliver a keynote speech about ‘The Inner Curriculum’. A major new piece of work with profound implications for the improvement of Mental Health and Wellbeing in schools.

We are hoping that schools will be able to send several – or many – members of staff. Perhaps use this day as an INSET day. To that end, we have kept the cost as low as possible for you.

There are 100 places available so please book soon.
