will take place at The National College for Teaching and Leadership in Nottingham, UK from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th July 2015.

This conference will be an opportunity for literacy practitioners and academics to discuss a literacy for the 21st Century and how to respond to the opportunities and challenges that face teachers and children.
Speakers to include Dr Henry Giroux, Professor Kathy Hall, Dr Steven Layne and author Kevin Brooks.
