The Innovation In Education Festival has been designed as an opportunity to bring together education and industry leaders as we explore how we can build schools of the future, and how we can best prepare our young people for the ever-changing future of work.

​The festival returns to Methodist Ladies’ College on November 10th & 11th, 2022. Over two action packed days, we will be bringing together over 200 teachers, educators, and school leaders as we explore what the future of education will look like for our schools and our students.

Throughout the festival, attendees will be hearing from leading keynote speakers and panelists with the program featuring a myriad of topics around innovation in education, the future of work, industry innovation, and more. After a morning of keynote speeches and panel discussions, attendees will then be hearing from leading WA educators in our ‘By Teachers For Teachers’ masterclass sessions that will explore case studies of what innovative educators are already doing in their classrooms. 

As an additional element of the festival, on November 18th, 2022, we will be working with 100 high school students as we explore what the future of work will look like for their generation via our Student Stream event. This event will see students participating in a series of workshops, panel discussions, and keynote speeches as they explore the opportunities available to them.
