Events and conferences

In this section, you can read about our range of regular events taking place across the UK, including seminars, symposia and workshops , as well as our annual international conference.

The BERA annual conference is the largest in the UK to focus on educational research and one of the largest social sciences conferences of its kind. Conference delegates include a wide range of academics, policymakers and practitioners who are engaged with, or have a strong interest in educational research. As well as UK-based participants, the conference attracts increasing numbers from further afield, reflecting the strong international component in BERA’s membership. We also have invited keynote speakers from our counterpart associations in the US, Australia and New Zealand. The practitioner community is also increasingly represented at the conference, following BERA’s recent incorporation into the British Curriculum Forum.
