We invite you to come together with your peers to discuss how to navigate the increasingly challenging role of the Headteacher.
We know that all Headteachers want to improve the quality of education and outcomes for children in their school, but with challenges around funding, teacher recruitment and retention, regulatory changes and increasing pressures on children, making this a reality is often an uphill struggle.
Developing your skills as a leader and setting practical and engaging priorities for your school can support the realisation of your school improvement ambitions.
That’s why we’ve designed The Headteacher’s Summit 2020 to guide you through the constant and often conflicting demands of your role, and offer the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences with other current and future headteachers.
Join the national discussion and secure the highest standards of leadership for your school.
