In her opening address on Wednesday 21 January at 11am, Ms Morgan will outline her vision across critical policy areas, the school curriculum, school improvement, and the establishment of academies and free schools. In keeping with the main focus of Bett, Ms Morgan will highlight how reform in these areas can be achieved or enhanced through education technology before taking a tour of the exhibition, which features more than 600 exhibitors.

Ms Morgan comments:

“I am really looking forward to visiting and opening Bett 2015. We should all be proud that the largest and best attended educational technology event in the world happens in London and I hope that many schools and colleges will come along. Events like Bett are a great opportunity for teachers to keep up to date with the latest developments and learn how they can be used to maximise educational benefits in schools.”

“The content of Bett is based entirely on visitor feedback; we aim to deliver the show that our visitors want, and if they tell us they want something, we do our best to get it. Everyone with any association with Bett, regardless of their job title or role, is on a journey towards a new, improved education landscape. We hope that by giving our visitors the chance to hear from Nicky Morgan, the Secretary of State for Education, we are supporting them on their journey.”

With the UK General Election pending in May 2015, Bett is also offering UK and international visitors the opportunity to hear alternate policy approaches with Tristram Hunt MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Education, who has also been confirmed to speak at the show.
