Ministerial Keynote Speaker

We are delighted that Lord Theodore Agnew, Minister for the School System, will present the Ministerial Keynote outlining the Department for Education’s priorities on the morning of the show.

Lord Agnew has a longstanding interest in education, having served on the board of several think tanks, including the Education Policy Institute, where he remains a trustee, and as the founder of the 14-school Inspiration Trust.  He was appointed as a non-executive Director of the DfE in 2010, and Chair of the Academies Board in 2013.

Sir David Carter, National Schools Commissioner, presents the afternoon keynote on behalf of the DfE.
