Architects of Collaboration 700x200

Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, Hill Street, Birmingham B5 4EW

Are you the architect in your school or college?  

Business leadership professionals in schools and colleges perform many roles. Whether you have responsibility for a range of business and operational strategies, or your focus is on specific areas such as directing finance, HR, or facilities, you will undoubtedly be the one who brings all the elements together to ensure your school or college delivers the best possible education experience for children and young people.

Whatever your job title, your role in anticipating issues, devising innovative solutions to challenges, and the ability to bring the right people together can often go unrecognised. ASCL’s Conference for Business Leaders 2019 will explore these crucial aspects of the business leader’s role, enabling you to harness and enhance your power as an architect of collaboration.

Key themes include:

Leading change
Architects recognise the need to collaborate in order to succeed. But amidst the challenges of restricted funding, how can you bring people and resources together to lead the changes necessary for a more collaborative organisation and environment?

Best practice, next practice
Architects encourage colleagues to share obstacles and solutions, and provide the vision needed for a collaboration-conducive environment. How can we extend our networks, and deliver and learn from colleagues beyond our own teams?

Future developments and research
Architects operating within a constantly changing system use an evidence-based approach, harnessing intelligence to stay ahead of the game when it comes to future planning. What is on the horizon, and how can we develop now to prepare for what lies ahead?

Ethical practice
Architects as leaders will face testing circumstances which could lead to a feeling that their skills and business practices are under constant scrutiny. How can we continue to foster an environment of trust and respect in these challenging situations?
