The Education World Forum is the world’s largest gathering of education and skills ministers. Delegates representing over two-thirds of the world’s population gather in the UK in January each year to debate future education policy. The event comprises three days of insight and inspiration from pioneers, policy makers and experts, with many sessions given by education ministers themselves as part of an honest assessment of education’s common issues and challenges.
The forum is supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department for Education, the Department for International Trade, the Department for International Development, the British Council and industry partners.
