Can I speak at the event?

Thanks for your interest but we are fully-booked for speakers now. Follow our blog and Twitter to find out what's happening next for teachers.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Please see here for transport options. There are roadworks around Oxford Road at the moment, and our stretch of Oxford Road is now closed to cars, so we advise that you use public transport if at all possible. However visitor parking is available within the University of Manchester.
