About us

ICT for Education is not tied to any companies, brands, products or services.  We help teachers and others responsible for UK schools to get the most out of technology - in the classroom, the staffroom, the front and back office, in and out of school, during term time and during the holidays.

ICT for Education is trusted by teachers, representing their views, concerns and experiences, and deals with the issues they face concerning the successful implementation of ICT within their schools. By bringing teachers together and sharing information and experience, ICT for Education is an invaluable source of information for teachers.

Conference and Exhibition Events

ICT for Education has an established national conference programme which visits all regions of the UK. Our conference programme tackles issues faced on a national and regional level, and is designed to inform and inspire delegates in their use of ICT.  Speakers are often teachers themselves looking to impart their real-life experiences and pass on their knowledge.  They address issues being faced by teachers and schools on a daily basis and offer advice and guidance that is practical and can be used the next day.

ICT for Education conferences are free of charge for delegates.

Delegates represent primary, secondary, independent and special needs' schools.  They are typically Headteachers, ICT Managers, Computing Coordinators, Network Managers, ICT Technicians, Business Managers and education professionals.  Pre-registration is usually between 150 and 180.  On conference day, delegate attendance is typically between 90 and 130.

An exhibition as well as a conference

An exhibition of ICT suppliers, related organisations and charities runs from 7.45 am until 1.15 pm.  Delegates visit the exhibition between conference sessions and during refreshment breaks and lunch.

The conferences bring together buyers and sellers in a perfect environment for networking and doing business.  To discuss exhibition and sponsorship opportunities at our conferences, please contact: Sarah Alexander or Louise Johnson

If you would like to contribute as a speaker or panelist at an ICT for Education conference, please contact our Brand Editorial Director: Sarah Underwood.
