The next big challenge faced by teachers and leaders is helping their students be ready for an uncertain future, we’ll be bringing to life all the skills that learners today will need to thrive tomorrow.

We’ll showcase the best examples of schools and colleges who are challenging their learners to become entrepreneurs and use their abilities to do exceptional things.

SEN and Neurodiversity

The growth in visible, and invisible, disabilities and learning needs is becoming more of a challenge across all levels of education. Especially as more systems move towards integrated education which creates a more diverse learning space.

Across the show we’ll showcase the products and solutions through trails and our new SEN area. Within the seminar programme we’ll share best practice and inspiring stories to help improve knowledge and learning of teachers, leaders and support staff.

Exceptional Pedagogy

Teachers want to do their very best for their learners, to help them tap into the latest thinking in improving learning outcomes. There’s remarkable things happening in learning spaces all over the world such as personalised and mobile learning. We’ll be sharing the stories and insights behind that best practice in teaching and learning.

Classroom Tech and Resources

Moving beyond the big shiny hardware on show at Bett is something that teachers have been calling for, we’re going to highlight large and small examples of innovative tech and resources, especially in the run up to the show that can help empower learning, many of which are free or work for schools on a budget.

Institute Tech and Solutions

Operating a school that uses data and analytics to drive improvements in student outcomes and operations is fast becoming a pre-requisite. Additionally, they help with the latest approaches to assessment and workload management.

We’ll highlight the examples, case-studies and best practice that can help Senior Leadership Teams and infrastructure management to make the right choices for their institution and make improvements to existing tech.


Bett has built a reputation for showing the boundary pushing innovation coming out of the EdTech scene. Across our seminar programme and Future’s area we’re pushing our exhibitors, and speakers to contextualise how the products, services and solutions they present are effective for institutions.

More broadly at Bett we’re committed to driving the efficacy agenda forward and working with the leading minds to break it down into much more manageable bitesize chunks and help schools and colleges embed it into their operations.
