KIIT College, Delhi, India – 19th- 21st November 2015

21st Century Skills: Creating a Generation of Entreprenuers

 “Don't limit a child to your own learning for they were born in another time.”
― Rabindranath Tagore

From the 19th- 21st November 2015, Education That Pays For Itself will bring together some of the world’s leading practitioners in financially sustainable and innovative education in a unique forum for learning, networking, inspiration and action.


Realizing a Shared Vision

Imagine... a school where all graduates leave with the skills and experience needed to generate wealth for themselves and their communities.

Imagine... a school in a developing country which is able to support itself without relying on subsidies – and yet is able to afford the best facilities and the best teachers. 

These schools exist.

The change is happening.

This is your chance to be part of it!

We will welcome up to 300 delegates for 3 days of lively workshops, debates and presentations. Our participants include educators, policymakers, business people, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs and NGOs from around the world, all sharing their ideas and knowledge on transforming young people from job seekers to job creators through educational and profitable school businesses.

“It has changed my perception of education.”

- 2014 delegate from Uganda


“The best thing was meeting with very different people from across the world with similar values and passions.”

-2014 delegate from India


If you’re interested in how education really can change the world, it’s time to come light that fire!

Find Out What You've Been Missing!

The Education That Pays For Itself international conferences are now in their 9th year, and they just keep getting better!

Unlike other events which are dominated by endless PowerPoint presentations, we focus on learning in small groups, and sharing expertise within solution-oriented workshops.

Every year we hold the conference with an educational organisation or school so that are participants can be at the heart of education innovation.

We also believe that much of the value in conferences such as ours comes from the working relationships formed, so we make sure there's plenty of time in the evenings for fun and getting to know one another.
