The Education People is very excited to bring you another great lineup of TEP Talks speakers for 2022.  The TEP Talks series launched in September 2020. These interactive sessions will take the form of a termly webinar, followed by questions, answers and discussion. They will be led by leading national and international speakers and link closely to current educational priorities.

This is a unique opportunity for teachers to connect with leading education experts as they share ideas and provide thoughts on how to close the gaps in pupil learning and improve educational outcomes.

During 2020 we had TEP Talks from Marc Rowland (Putting Your Energy into the Provision for the Forgotten Third), Alex Quigley (Closing the Reading Gap), Professor Daniel Muijs (Using Relevant Research and Evidence to Inform Practice in School) and Ian Gilbert (Navigation vs Knowledge - Thinking and Learning in a Post COVID World).

2021 TEP Talks were held by Professor Teresa Cremin (Reading for Pleasure - Building Communities of Readers), Mark Anderson (Research-informed Approach to the Successful Use of Technology Support Remote Education), Pran Patel (Reviewing Curriculum Impact on all Children - Working Towards Equality)  Christine Counsell (Knowledge in a Curriculum: Getting Beyond the Myths and Misconceptions), and most recently Maxine McDonald Taylor (The Education Inspection Framework and SEND).

For 2022, we have had TEP Talks from Lavinya Stennett (One Year On - What Now?), Daisy Christodoulou (Formative and Summative Assessment), Daniel Sobel (How can We Get Inclusion to Work in a Way That doesn't Involve as Much Cost, Time and Stress?), Alex Quigley (How do We Close the Writing Gap in the Classroom) and Lindsay Pickton (The Key Stage Two Reading Curriculum and the Reading Diet).  

Our first TEP Talks for 2023 is with Peps Mccrea (The Science of Motivation) - see below for full details and to book.

Please be aware that our TEP Talks are only available as live events and will not be available to purchase as recorded webinars.
