This event is part of the School of Education’s Bristol Conversations in Education research seminar series. These seminars are free and open to the public.

Hosted by the Education in Small States Research Group (ESSRG) Centre for Comparative and International Research in Education (CIRE)

Chair: Peter Clegg (Professor in Politics and International Relations, and Head of the School of Social Sciences, UWE Bristol)


There are 14 British Overseas Territories scattered across the globe. Britain has ultimate political and constitutional responsibility, but the Territories have significant autonomy of action, including in the area of education. The seminar brings together three speakers with an intimate knowledge of education policy and practice in their respective territories. The seminar will cover issues such as educational policy-making in very small territories, funding and staffing, the nature of the curriculum, and links with external educational providers.
