Headteachers' Summer Term Leadership Seminar: creating a culture for learning
Outline of event:
This is the last of our three Seminars planned by ERSIP for the current academic year, continuing our theme of “Creating a Culture for Learning”. This follows the first two successful events under this theme when we heard about our Research Schools initiative, from Tom Bennett (Behaviour Czar) and more lately from our Teaching School Alliances at Bridlington Spa about a wide range of relevant topics.
For our Summer Seminar we are extremely fortunate to have 2 very different but relevant and thought provoking speakers.
Firstly, Katrina Gueli, Senior HMI, Maintained Schools and Academies. Katrina is a qualified teacher and, before joining Ofsted, gained extensive school-based middle and senior leadership experience in a range of different schools. As a senior leader, her responsibilities included the improvement of teaching and learning, in particular, working closely with specific departments to raise achievement. Katrina also worked as a local authority adviser and accredited school improvement partner in both primary and secondary schools. Katrina has particular expertise in the development of teaching and learning, leadership and management and science. Whilst we recognise that headteachers will be aware of the new inspection framework, we are particularly interested in Katrina’s comments around Ofsted's wider perspective regarding the curriculum and supporting a culture for learning.
Secondly, Tom Sherrington will be delivering the second session of the seminar. After a career of over 30 years as a teacher and school leader, Tom is now working as a freelance consultant in schools around the United Kingdom and is in demand as a CPD provider and speaker. He writes the popular blog teacherhead.com having distinct and sometimes provocative views about a wide range of topics including assessment, behaviour management, teacher workload and work-life balance, teachers as researchers, the overhaul of MFL (relevant as we will also be hearing from Michael Loncaster about the MFL Project) and the co-construction of classes with pupils. He has also published a book on teaching called The Learning Rainforest. He will certainly help us to think “out of the box”.
Please register as soon as possible for this event by the 3rd of June.
Learning and Teaching Outcomes:
We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes
