Cognita leads on wellbeing at UK education event
We’re proud to be partnering with this year’s Festival of Education, the UK’s largest annual education event, to curate a bespoke strand of sessions focused on young people’s wellbeing.
Our ‘Wellbeing Summit’ features speakers from within Cognita, including Group Education Director Simon Camby and Global Wellbeing Director Beth Kerr, as well as external partners.
Arguably the most pressing issue facing education today, mental health and wellbeing is on every school’s agenda. The Wellbeing Summit runs across both days of the Festival (20 – 21 June) exploring a wide range of themes, including the pressing issue of self-image in the age of social media, the role of metacognition in building resilience and a live debate with students on what being well means to them.
See a full list of summit speakers and details of the sessions, here.
Drawing thousands of practitioners each year, the Festival of Education brings together the very best of education’s most forward thinking advocates at one of the leading forums for thought leadership, CPD and debate.
