ASCL Conference for New Headteachers

09:00 - 16:00, 10 July 2019 London Book now

Suitable for colleagues taking on their first headship/head of school position from September 2019 and those who have started their first headship in the last 6 to 12 months in either primary or secondary.

This unique conference will combine the experience of established headteachers, the latest thinking from policy makers and practical tips to help you make a successful leadership transition to headship.

Set in the context of the first 100-days of headship and beyond, the conference will help you to establish a firm platform for balancing the creation and delivery of your vision for your school with the everyday challenges and demands of the new role that you are taking on.

There will also be the opportunity to make new connections with colleagues also starting out on their career as a headteacher and the chance to find out about mentoring opportunities.

Topics covered may include

  • Developing vision, mission and culture

  • Relationships with governors/trust boards and your CEO

  • Personal resilience and making time for you

  • Building, managing and harnessing the talent of your team

  • Telling the story of your school

  • Managing competing priorities and challenging situations

  • Taking parents on the journey with you

  • Financial responsibilities

  • Career development

  • Working with trade unions
