Sharing VbE Conferences

We are running a number of free, short, online VbE conferences for staff and leaders of VbE schools. It is also open to all schools who have an interest in VbE specifically or more generally, in values in education.

The recorded conferences from the series are available to watch in the “Past Conferences” section that follows the Future Conferences section on this page.

Each conference is scheduled to last for around 1 hour. Each will be introduced by members of VbE. There will be one or more guest speakers who will share their VbE or values-centric experiences to inform and inspire schools about the great implementations they have achieved in their schools. There will also be time for participants to interact with the directors of VbE and with each other, to discuss any issues they may have and to share ideas.

You can register for the conferences below.
