Festival of Education has cemented itself as the most important, interesting and inspirational event in the education calendar. 
Last year we also saw an impressive number of people attend the two days at Wellington College. Over 4,000 festival-goers immersed themselves in sessions delivered by more than 300 speakers. From our opening act, the comedian and former teacher Hugh Dennis, to hundreds of education experts such as Amanda Speilman and Daisy Christodoulou, it was undeniably the event of the year.
Following the 2017 festival, we have been working tirelessly on how to further improve everyone’s experience of this great event.  
The 2018 Festival will see the return of the Festival of Skills. Established in the summer of 2016, the Festival of Skills is our sister event, focusing the further education, apprenticeships and skills, and covering everything from ESOL to apprenticeships. The Festival of Skills will further broaden and enhance our offer to delegates and sponsors. 
We have made more enhancements to the layout and structure of the festival for 2018. We’ve expanded our exhibitor areas to ensure increased exposure to festival-goers, by placing exhibition marquees alongside main thoroughfares and catering zones.  
We are also delighted to welcome back our education media partner, Schools Week. Both newspapers will play a pivotal role in ensuring the continued success of the Festival of Education.
The Telegraph Festival of Education is all about engaging with the audience and we look to our supporters and partners to participate by providing knowledge, content, workshops, activities and sessions in a variety of fields.
The festival attracts education’s most forward-thinking innovators, influencers, politicians, journalists, business leaders and policy-makers. 
As experts in your field and as a festival sponsor or exhibitor, you will be able to showcase your organisation’s contribution to education like never before in 2018. 
There are a variety of opportunities available for this year’s festival. Outlined in this brochure are a series of packages and options that have been designed to provide your organisation with a highly engaging platform. 
We look forward to working with you on the best British educational event of the year.
