Leading schools in the 21st century conference 2019
The challenge of leading schools in this century is rising. An evolving system with the growth of multi-academy structures, the reframing of local authorities, the impact of financial pressures and the complexities of needs amongst children and young people means that leading a school has never been more demanding. Yet in amongst this, school and education leaders are finding ways not only of making it work, but ensuring something special shines through, whether this is in the approach to teaching in the classroom, to the design and organisation of a multi-academy trust. In a school-led system, there really is the opportunity for a generation of school leaders to re-configure education from what we have known to what we would want. This really is the time of 'liminal leadership'. (Tierney, 2016)
Following the success of our 2018 conference, the NAHT is organising and hosting another secondary conference in 2019. The theme for this year is 'Leading schools in the 21st century', and will include keynote addresses and workshops, using the same formula which proved so popular.
This conference will give leaders at all levels within schools, the opportunity to come together and hear from the best speakers and to be inspired by leaders and schools that are seeking to explore new ways of working. There will be plenty of opportunities to network and learn from fellow participants.
We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham, in February, 2019.
