Pearson Reception and Gallery Walk

Topic: The future of English education: Employability, assessment, and technology

Join us to celebrate YOU and engage in exciting conversations with our experts.

How do we prepare students for the future? What are the skills they will require to perform future jobs that don’t exist yet? English is generally seen as a key skill for employability – but is it enough? Do learners have the skills they need for today and the adaptability to flourish in an unknown future? Regardless of students’ goals, they need to learn English and other skills that will be in high demand.

During this event, you will have the opportunity to engage with our experts and your peers on the topics of employability, measuring progress, digital transformation, and assessment.

This is an open event, but you must register to be on the event list. Drinks and light appetizers will be served.
