Party Conference 2021

We’re delighted to announce that the Education Policy Institute will be running a full programme of in-person, blended and virtual events at the party conferences this year.

In a challenging year for education, events will focus on the full range of policy issues from across our research programme, including education recovery, pupil wellbeing and assessment.

Every year we partner with high profile stakeholders to run a variety of roundtables, panel events and receptions, in order to facilitate high-level discussion and debate and deliver policy impact. Over the last five years, our speakers and panelists have included dozens of Ministers and shadow Ministers, prominent sector representatives, and leading research and policy experts.


Why partner with EPI?

  • 5+ years of experience delivering engaging and impactful events at party conference.
  • Our conference events typically draw in hundreds of attendees from the education sector, academia, political parties, and third sector and business groups – with many offering standing room only, and some trending on social media.
  • Our strong relationships in the sector help to recently secure high profile speakers, including the Secretary of State for Education, the Minister of State for Children and Families, and the Chair of the House of Commons Education Select Committee.
