Conference for Pastoral Leaders 2022

*Please note: in a change to previous communications, this Conference is now being held online*

Following the accounts that appeared on the Everyone’s Invited website and Ofsted’s Review of Sexual Abuse in Schools and Colleges, our Conference for Pastoral Leaders will focus on the challenges of addressing the issues of sexual harassment and abuse in and around educational settings.

The Conference will explore the cultural and societal drivers that lead to the ‘normalisation’ of harmful behaviours both on and offline, including the reluctance of young people to report incidents.

Delegates will hear from a range of expert speakers who will offer evidence-informed solutions to help schools, colleges and trusts to review this aspect of their safeguarding.

The objective of our Conference for Pastoral Leaders 2022 will be to empower school, college and trust leaders with the knowledge, language, and confidence to tackle the significant safeguarding challenges presented by sexual harassment in society – both on and offline.

Sessions will be available to watch live on 9 February, with recordings available to view on demand until 31 March 2021.
