Educate Together is delighted to announce that it will hold its Ethical Education Conference at the Alexander Hotel, 25-26 November 2016. 

Titled 'Raising The Student Voice', this conference will bring together a plethora of educationalists to discuss strategies and classroom activities that will encourage students to speak up and speak out. In addition, there will be a another TeachMeet that was a great success last year. In keeping with the theme of the conference, we will also host a 'StudentMeet' where children in Educate Together schools can exchange ideas.
