Welcome to BrewEdEYOnline 4

BrewEd was introduced to the Education sector by Ed Finch and Daryn Egan-Smith as a way of bringing educators together on a Saturday afternoon to discuss and debate policy, practice and pedagogy.

It is a grassroots movement in the truest sense of the word, it is for educators, organised by educators and attended by educators. The events are organised by volunteers and are completely free from corporate sponsorship. They are inclusive events and, as such, ticket prices were kept as low as possible.

They soon became very popular with the events springing up all over the country, and affectionately termed as 'Pints and Pedagogy' as the venues often used were pubs, as they often had the space and could also provide the catering. (Find out more)

Simona McKenzie (@signoramac) then organised the first one for the Early Years sector in Twickenham, January 2019, and before long BrewEdEY events were also popping up all over the country! 

With the onset of the COVID-19 Lockdown I decided to launch an online version of #BrewEdEY for the sector and to deliver this via Zoom software to make it interactive and accessible to all who wished to attend; I was delighted when close friend and colleague, Aaron Bradbury, volunteered to support me in this venture. All of the places were taken within two hours of launching them on Eventbrite so we released more and again they were gone in less than an hour. We then took the decision to record the presentations so that they could be shared more widely after the event.

So here we were again, back in another Lockdown, so to support the Sector and bring as many as possible together, we engaged with some more generous Speakers, providing their time for free so we could hold another informative and lively session, this time joined by Ofsted Inspectors to help us understand the plans for inspections moving forward into the new year. Special thanks needs to be given to our speakers as it would not have been possible without their generosity in giving their time to support us in bringing these popular events to the sector. 


Speakers and Presentations:

  • Maureen Hunt, Positive About Parents
  • Gill Jones (HMI) & Wendy Ratcliff (HMI), Ofsted Updates: Safe & Phased Return to Inspections
  • Nazma Meah, The Unofficial Children's Centre
  • Kim Benham & Sejal Payne (S & S Training Partners), Inclusiveness in the Early Years in Regards to Race, Ethnicity and Culture
  • Debbie Garvey, Our Philosophy, An Exploration

The presentations (modules/lessons) are set out in the order of the day and each one has a copy of the slides and any additional/supporting resources, links etc. as well as the opportunity to find out more about each of the speakers and how to connect with them.
