Introducing the 2021 Festival of Education’s keynote speakers


The unprecedented challenges that we have all faced in 2020 have compelled educators to adapt by adopting the latest ‘internet+’ technologies. This trend has, in turn, prompted educational institutions around the world to rethink their teaching practices as they move toward a future post-COVID-19 era. The future is always at the top of our minds at Wellington College China. It informs everything about our curriculum and our teaching methodologies, because our key mission is to equip our pupils for success in the future. In these challenging times, this is now more important than ever, which is why our theme for Wellington College China’s 2021 Festival of Education is ‘Interpreting the Future of Education’.


Events from the past years

‘Interpreting the Future of Education’

Wellington College China’s 2021 Festival of Education once again promises a roster of renowned educators, researchers, industry experts and thought leaders. They will share their ideas and debate the important issues in a series of talks, panel discussions and workshops. This year, we will explore the following five topics:

Future Schools

Early Years Education



Mental Health


We will be holding both live and virtual events at our Tianjin, Shanghai and Hangzhou campuses, and they will be open to all educators, parents and education enthusiasts. We are excited to introduce to you three of our keynote speakers this year:

Dates and Times

The 2021 Festival of Education will feature virtual events online as well as live events at Wellington College’s Tianjin, Shanghai and Hangzhou campuses.

The virtual component of this year’s Festival of Education will comprise remote lectures and panel discussions from our guest speakers. These are open to all and free of charge.


Inspired by the original Festival of Education held annually by our close partner, Wellington College in England, the Wellington College China Festival of Education was launched in 2015. Since then, it has grown considerably in scope and scale, gaining recognition as China’s premier event for educators seeking career development as well as parents and education enthusiasts seeking new perspectives. Every year, thousands of participants come to Wellington College China’s campuses to share new ideas and discuss the most important questions in education today.
