Education That Pays 2017

Wednesday 15 November 2017 at Norton Rose Fulbright, London, UK

For the first time, we are holding our annual conference in London!
The theme of this year's  conference is "Learning for Life: Entrepreneurship, Employability and Skills for Success".
We believe that success in the 21st century requires young people to leave schools with valuable skills in leadership, problem-solving and entrepreneurship. The conference is an opportunity to hear from leaders in entrepreneurship and education, take part in an interactive 'Enterprise Education Lab' and join the discussion on the next generation of entrepreneurs and global changemakers.

Registration HERE. Early Bird admission at £95 will be open until October 13th , after which admission will be £195.

Please note that we are only able to provide invitation letters for visa applications following your registration.

'Education That Pays' Conferences

Our conferences represent a unique opportunity to be part of a community that is transforming education in developing countries by integrating entrepreneurship and financial sustainability into the fabric of schools. The events are also a chance to discover how new and innovative models are tackling key challenges in education across the developing world, such as:


  • How to teach young people to succeed as job creator not just job seekers
  • How to supoprt young people to develop a broad range of transferable skills for work and life
  • How to provide high-quality education without high fees
  • How to empower future generations to break out of the poverty trap


    Being part of a community - learning, group work and fun! 

    Unlike other events which are dominated by endless PowerPoint presentations, we focus on learning in small groups, and sharing expertise within solution-oriented workshops.


    We also believe that much of the value in conferences such as ours comes from the working relationships formed, so we make sure there's plenty of time in the evenings for fun and getting to know one another.

    Delegates’ feedback from our conferences:

    'As a result of what I have learnt at this conference, I will assist governments to develop policies that include entrepreneurship education',
    Clement Siamatowe, UNESCO, France
    'This conference has inspired and reassured us that we can reach full financial self-sufficiency for our training academy and integrate the self-sufficiency philosophy into our education program',
    Siya Sebenza, South Africa
    'After having learnt from Teach A Man To Fish I’ll add vocational & entrepreneurship training and help learners produce from using catering services, beauty therapy, dressmaking and carpentry, benefiting 2,000 students', The Molimas Foundation, DR Congo

    Don't miss out - get on the list!
