The professional imperative: from big picture to detail PLACES AVAILABLE
Limited Capacity seats available

Being caught up in the complex world of the day to day and the endless change of national policy can leave people wondering which way they should be facing and how they keep so many ‘stakeholders’ satisfied.
The ‘stakeholders’ that matter most are the children and young people in our schools.

This session will explore briefly the complex world of schooling from policy to practice. There will be an insight into the latest shenanigans of central government and the challenge of keeping the inspection wolf from the door. Couple this with the changing society and the complexity of the children’s lives and we find a recognition of the current imperatives with which school leadership lives.

This will be balanced with a consideration of how we make learning that is irresistible? What can we do to ensure that children make progress through worthwhile and engaging activity? How can children be taught to be proficient, to master concepts, ideas and skills? How do articulate a broad and balanced curriculum with real substance?

These are the sorts of questions we will address in this session as we go from big picture to detail in considering leadership approaches that will focus upon learning and how we can help teachers to get the best of it.

The session will be fast paced with short talks, video extracts and group discussion. It is hoped that it will be worthwhile, thought provoking, practicable and enjoyable.
