  • Inspiring Leaders Leadership Conference

    St George's Park, Burton Upon Trent, Newborough Road, Needwood, Burton upon Trent, DE13 9PD

    The Inspiring Leaders Leadership Conference is exclusively available to those within the Inspiring Leaders community, including the MATs and alliances that make up our partnership and our current and past participants. Bringing together this community provides a unique occasion to collaborate and share practice with like minded colleagues and to be inspired and reinvigorated as school leaders.

    This two-day residential conference is now in its seventh year and is considered a key CPD, sharing and networking date in the diary for our school leaders.

    In times of change, now more than ever it is essential that school leaders have a clear aims and philosophy, a vision for their schools and rise to the challenges our system presents. The Conference gives leaders a clearly defined space and time to think, discover, explore, share and rejuvenate with like minded people from across the region.

    Through a programme of internationally recognised key notes, quality workshop leaders, specialist leaders of education and local best practice, we aim to support delegates to develop and clarify this vision.

    Past keynote speakers have included included Sir John Jones, Steve Munby, Estelle Morris, James Kerr, Laura McInerley and Alex Quigley. In addition, the conference includes a range of workshops, a market place, holisitic head massage, graphic recorder and plenty of chance to share with colleagues. In the evening, participants have a chance to network and discuss in a less formal way with a three course meal, live band and dancing.
