What makes teenagers tick? Why does their behaviour seem to be erratic at times? How can we help them maximise their potential? What does the research on the adolescent brain tell us?
Building on the success of FutureEd™ 2017, this summit will again bring together leading experts, teachers, schools leaders, researchers and practitioners to explore ways in which we can help our young people maximise their potential.
The summit includes presentations from leading experts in their fields, together with facilitated, round-table discussions tackling key issues affecting young people and education today.
