Celebrations in Brazil at the Cognita LatAm Conference

Cognita LatAm Conference and Awards 2017

From 3-4th October, colleagues from Brazil and Chile met in Rio de Janeiro for the Cognita LatAm Conference 2017.

The aim of the conference was for Cognita educators to network and exchange ideas but it was also a time to celebrate the quality of education in LatAm.

Josep Caubet, Cognita’s CEO for Latin America, said:
“The LatAm Conference is an annual event we have in our region to take stock of the achievements of our schools and staff. It is also an excellent opportunity to look at the latest educational thinking and to share best practice across our schools. I would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s awards and look forward to another inspiring year in the LatAm region.”
