Guidance in school leadership - the School Leaders Summit
The education space is one which is constantly evolving, and every school in the UK is thinking about how it can deal with these changes. From the new Ofsted framework and shifts in assessment to the National Curriculum and academy conversion, the goal posts are shifting and it can be impossible to keep up. School management teams are finding themselves faced with a fluctuating environment they are under pressure to adapt to and prepare for.
The School Leaders Summit at Bett 2013 offered the senior leadership teams of K-12 educational establishments the opportunity to hear from other education professionals who can help make sense of all these changes. Held alongside the Bett exhibition, the School Leaders Summit provided a forum for discussion of education issues and an expert perspective on how schools can best ready themselves for change. Educators who have been recognised for their outstanding practice presented inspiring case studies to motivate their peers and stimulated dialogue on how to promote excellence in education.
