DEPARTMENT FOR EDUCATION

We are delighted to announce that we will have our DfE and EFSA Networking Zone on the show floor once again. The stand will be packed with even more important information for schools & academies, including representatives from the STA, NCTL and CCS.

This dedicated networking area gives visitors the opportunity to meet and ask questions to senior education staff and advisors.

On the day there will be a drop in service for visitors, covering a multitude of topics, including:

  • Becoming an academy, guidance on the conversion process
  • Tips on registration, consultation and pre-approval checks
  • Annual grant and funding allocations
  • Capital and Pupil Premium allocations
  • Prevent duty guidance
  • Tests and assessment information
  • School led development and initial teacher training
  • Procurement efficiencies
  • Financial management and governance
