The whole day has been designed for those working in the Early Years and Primary settings and is not to be missed. There are speakers and sessions throughout the day focusing in on the key issues in both the early education and the primary phases.
For the first time, the conference will be presented as a wholly interactive online experience, featuring live speakers, presentations and interactive Q&A, and a wealth of online content to explore and take home. The content of the day will remain available online to you for 30 days after the event. We look forward to welcoming you to a unique online experience!
This is a unique opportunity for school leaders, leadership teams, teachers and support staff to reflect on and develop policy and practice in their schools and settings, making sure that the learning journey continues seamlessly for children as they move through into school.
The overall theme of the event is on delivering in your school or setting with confidence, and what it means now to be a confident and creative school or setting leader. Moving your school or setting on from the current crisis and using your role and skills as a leader to deliver the best and most innovative educational experience for young people, taking account of the most recent policy developments and navigating through the guidance.
The conference will explore what really works well for school leaders and the young people they teach, based on sharing experiences in real time with your peers and colleagues and on the latest research.
Holding the conference online is of course necessary to help ensure it can go ahead safely and effectively. But we believe you will find the virtual conference space as engaging as face to face, and there will be plenty of high quality content, break out groups and plenty of interaction opportunities available throughout the day to keep you involved in the discussion and interacting with your peers. As always, you will be able to interact with our sponsors and exhibitors while exploring the fantastic products and services they offer, in the virtual exhibition hall.
Being online means you can explore and learn at your own pace, come back to revisit or share presentations which have inspired you in the days after the conference, and fill up your virtual conference goody bag, all without taking you and your precious time away from your classroom or setting.
The high level keynote speakers (watch this space for details as soon as they are confirmed) and workshops have been carefully chosen – including Early Learning Goals, Resilience, Creativity, Development Matters - to inform and inspire delegates, provoke discussion and debate, highlight the very latest and best research and pedagogy in Early Years and Primary Education.
