HOW CAN SCHOOL LEADERS HELP TEACHERS MAKE THEIR TEACHING EVEN BETTER

On a daily basis, school leaders must combine managing the operational tightrope with developing long-term strategies which inspire others to look to the future. How do we ensure that what we do and the decisions we take really make a difference to our colleagues, young people and the wider community we serve?

Specifically tailored to meet the needs of education in Northern Ireland, this year’s annual conference explores how we can successfully balance strategic thinking with overcoming daily operational hurdles, ensuring our leadership has real impact.

Join leadership colleagues from throughout Northern Ireland for essential policy updates, inspirational ideas, and an opportunity to refocus on the purpose of leadership.

Non-members welcome.
