The International Festival of Learning is more than just a one-off festival…it’s a movement of interconnected educators and businesses, aligned with the same mission.

Founded in 2016 with a successful pilot involving more than 1200 delegates, the festival has grown in size and status – and now commands one of the top spots in the UK education calendar.

The key focus for 2019 is underpinned by the Pearson – Future of Skills Report


The ‘Six Challenge Areas’ draw inspiration from an announcement in August 2018 by Education secretary Damian Hinds, who issued a challenge to the technology industry – to bring about a “step-change in education”.

We have added a sixth area – ‘Leadership in an Ai World’ – because we believe that the uniquely human skills of leadership will be vital in sustaining life in a world where artificial intelligence and humanity will increasingly co-exist.


As National Mental Health and Wellbeing Awareness Week comes to a close, we’re marking its significance by offering a 50% discount on IFL tickets – using the code mentalhealth50 at www.ifleast.org until the end of May!

There are 9 sessions on this subject, plus a panel discussion – plus – more than 80 other sessions across 8 different topic areas.

The IFL is the biggest CPD event in the Eastern Region and takes place on 28 June at West Suffolk College. We hope to see you there!
