Throughout March 2013, primary and secondary headteachers and practitioners joined leading academics in discussions at the cornerstones of educational change – curriculum redesign, teaching and learning, professional capital and accountability/intelligent inspection.
Whilst blue sky thinking was strongly encouraged, discussion and feedback enabled every delegate to leave the venues with ideas that they could implement forthwith, to bring about systemic change in their schools and to give their youngsters every conceivable opportunity to succeed.
Throughout the symposium series, we were delighted to be supported by Guy Claxton, Bill Lucas, Dylan Wiliam, Tim Oates, Andy Hargreaves, Christine Gilbert and Chris Husbands … and pleased to welcome support from our campaign partners – ASCL, Lord Baker, the Edge Foundation and the Baker Dearing Trust.
- London events were held at the Kia Oval Conference Centre
- Manchester events at the King’s House Conference Centre
