What will you find at the National Literacy Trust secondary conferences?

The aim of our secondary conferences and festivals of learning is to celebrate best practice and explore the issues most significant to secondary practitioners through a combination of thought leadership keynote presentations and workshops. With a focus on disciplinary literacy they also include events for students.

Be part of our campaign to improve students’ literacy for learning

Never has it been more important for young people to have the literacy skills to access the secondary curriculum, do well in their learning across all subjects, and develop the skills they need to be successful and thrive in their life beyond school.

Recognising that literacy is the greatest lever against disadvantage and plays a critical role in wellbeing, our secondary online conferences and subject-focused festivals bring together a diverse range of voices from academics, leading practitioners, award-winning authors, and champions from the business sector, all with literacy at the heart of the conversation. .
