Immediately following our great event in Norfolk on the 18th July, Education Britain had a major impact on the range of key influencers and decision makers present (including Andy Wood, Chair of the New Anglia LEP) and led to the creation of the “New Anglia 100″ – the simple, yet powerful idea of gathering 100 key people from across the region to identify the 100 most impactful ideas to bring about change in education and learning.
