Capturing The Teenage Brain Conference 2018 takes place tomorrow!

08 February 2018

The theme for the inaugural conference is œCapturing the teenage brain. This conference aims to:


  • inspire, stimulate and empower current and future leaders of education to develop a greater understanding of educational and neuroscience thinking on adolescence;

  • highlight and celebrate examples of effective and innovative practice in schooling and educating teenagers;

  • enable networking and opportunities for collaboration both at and following the conference;

  • provide practical advice and ideas for delegates to take away from the conference.



The day features Professor Guy Claxton and Dr Andrew Curran as the keynote speakers. Guy is a cognitive scientist specialising in the expandability of mental powers and the founder of Building Learning Power, a global influence on education which pioneered practical methods of education combining high levels of achievement with the development of useful, general habits of mind. Andrew is a practicing paediatric neurologist at Alder Hey Children™s Hospital in Liverpool and makes the complicated workings of the brain understandable. They will be joined by Sarah Kendrick, Head of Service at children™s mental health charity Place2Be.
