Northern Rocks 2017

The first Northern Rocks Education Conference #NRocks was held on Saturday 7th June 2014 at Leeds Metropolitan University. 500 teachers gathered in the rain to reclaim their profession.

On Saturday 17th June 2017, a wide variety of education specialists will be heading to Leeds and we hope you can join us. In addition, we™re committed to our principle that education exists to make the world a better place and that the future lies in the hands of our young people. This year we™ll have some of those young people telling us what they think about education, what they hope for in the future and what they would like to change.
