On Friday 21st October, educators of all kinds are encouraged to head to Ipswich for the Suffolk Festival of Learning, an event aiming to connect business with education, and to provide all education professionals with influential and inspirational speakers, workshops and CPD. The first event of its kind in the region, this gathering boasts 1000 delegates from all sectors of education on board for a day of keynote presentations and workshops.

The Suffolk Festival of Learning will provide attendees with an eclectic lineup of high-profile speakers and consultants, alongside local contributions of excellent and innovative practice.

“We’re breaking the mould with this festival in the area,” said Rob Walden, festival director at Real World Education Group, “connecting business with education, motivating teachers and helping school and college leaders get a headstart on future strategic changes in education.

“The region has never seen such a large, high-quality menu of content – all against the stunning backdrop of the University of Suffolk on the beautiful Ipswich Quayside.”

Festival organisers have arranged for those in attendance to be entertained by live music, Shakespeare Schools Festival, ‘History through the Looking Glass’ and more fun activities, including interactive experiences.

All education professions – teachers, middle and senior leadership, headteachers, governors and support staff - are welcome, and are encouraged to come along for a useful, enjoyable and fulfilling day. The event has been designed so that there is something for everyone, with an emphasis on real enjoyment.

Carole Baker, health and wellness consultant, added: “We were one of the first companies to secure an exhibition space at the festival, and already we’re making links – before we’ve even got to the festival. The education market is so relationship driven, and we’re excited about getting our foot in the door to the area.”

After a day of workshops and keynotes, everyone at Ipswich Quayside are highly encouraged to head over to the nearby Cult Bar and Café for the Suffolk Festival of Learning official afterparty.

    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.
