8:45 am
Opening Keynote Presentation: Effectively Leading Change During Difficult Times

Why do we resist change as we grow older. How can we nurture and develop an organisational culture that embraces change and encourages collaboration?

Richard examines why change has become increasingly challenging and how risk aversion can stifle individuals and organisations. He explores how to harness the power of creativity, curiosity and confidence in uncertain times and why we must shift the paradigm to understand that change is not a programme or a strategy but an ever-present organic part of the 21st Century.

Workforce & CPD Workshop: Trust-Based Observations - Maximising Teaching and Learning Growth

It is widely agreed that current observation practices do not improve teaching and learning, but rather hinder teacher risk-taking. In this session, Craig Randall, will explore how to engage with observation as a supportive tool for teacher learning, which combines empathy and growth mindset to create a powerful system for professional collaboration that enables teacher growth and an empowered professional community.

Key learning points will include:

  • How to design and implement a framework that places teacher growth at the centre of the teacher evaluation process in your school
  • How to lead observations based on trust, relationships, and efficient feedback
  • Discovering alternatives to evaluative grading of pedagogy which focuses on individual teacher strength and promotes growth innovation in teaching and learning
