The IFL is more than a one-day event. It’s a movement of interconnected people and organisations – all with a common aim – to improve education for the long-term. Underpinned by the Pearson research report – The Future of Skills 2030, the 2019 festival is focused on ‘Human Skills in a Technological World’ and embraces the DfE challenge to the tech industry to ‘revolutionise education’, whilst empowering the uniquely human skills that computers can’t replace. Managing workload; teacher-training; teaching practices; lifelong learning; re-imagining assessment and of course, leadership – to ensure the strategic and ground-level upgrading of education towards 2030.
