Education Estates 11 & 12 November, Manchester Central

In order for pupils and students to realise their full learning potential, they need the best learning environments. Facilities that are purpose built for learning, not just for today’s needs but also those in the future – an environment that inspires and empowers teachers, lecturers, pupils and students alike.

Therefore it is vitally important to realise the full potential of existing estates, maximising space and functionality with a focus on creating the ideal environment for learning. To bring out the best in people, we need to make the most of our buildings whether we’re working with existing premises or starting from scratch.

Comprising a two-day exhibition and conference Education Estates brings the education sector together to share best practice, share knowledge and learn from each other. The conference has been put together by the industry, for the industry and has two streams, one covering schools and one covering colleges and universities.

James Lee, Event Director of Education Estates says “The strapline for Education Estates is ‘Creating Learning Environments’ and this is the focus we would like delegates, exhibitors and speakers to have at this key event in the calendar”.
