Conference Programme 2024

Education Buildings Wales 2024 | Cardiff University


We have just completed the 7th edition of Education Buildings Wales, the only event of its kind focusing on the funding, design, build, maintenance and management of schools colleges and universities. The 2024 event featured a multi-stream conference, networking area and an awards ceremony that celebrates excellence and achievement. As the annual meeting place for key public sector influencers, decision makers, and all those involved in designing, delivering, refurbishing and supplying products/services for education buildings, it is one of the most effective forums for networking with those in the industry.


The 2024 agenda looked at the key challenges facing estates & facilities profesionals, the latest policies presented by representatives of the Welsh Government and notable trends, with real life examples that inspire and shape the future of learning environments.


Key takeaways of Neal O'Leary - Programme Director of the Welsh Government

  • Support for Learners – SEN/ALN demand has grown and stimulated a conversation.
  • Collaboration and Communication – we do this so well in Wales and specifically within Education – this is evident in the collaborative desire to address the needs of a broad range of learners.
  • Decarbonisation and Sustainability – cross-cutting in everything we do. Committed, passionate and leading the way in Wales.
  • Wellbeing and mental health – another very topical subject matter, exacerbated by Covid lockdowns – that fits with our priorities.
  • Support for Learners, Collaboration & Communication and Decarb & Sustainability are intrinsically linked to improving learning environments and in supporting the wellbeing and mental health of our learners in Wales.
