We are running a free VbE Pupils’ Conference on 22 October 2021, between 10am – 12pm UK time. We are exploring running two additional conferences on the same day at times suitable for schools in the Asian and American time zones.

The conference is open to learners and staff from all existing and aspiring VbE schools, and to any school that engages with Values.

The conference will be delivered by pupils for pupils. It is themed around two questions for the pupils to consider. It will be introduced by the founder of VbE Dr Neil Hawkes, and our CEO Bridget Knight.

Note that the conference will be recorded so is not appropriate for any pupil who does not have parental permission to be recorded.

Pupils’ Presentations
The audience will be primarily values-based students. Any school that is interested in their pupils contributing to the presentations should email us at info@valuesbasededucation.com

Schools can register for the conference below on behalf of their pupils. There only needs to be one registration for each group of pupils. Schools that want more than one Zoom connection, where for example they are accommodating several classes in different classrooms, should register each class/assembly separately.
