For this year’s conference LAAT is working with Independent Thinking to deliver an exceptional line-up of charismatic speakers with the power to challenge and inspire. Together we will be exploring the relational approach to transforming learning and experiences for children and adults in order to ensure that all of our children in Greater Lincolnshire have the greatest possible chances in life.
Joining us to open the conference will be Andy Wolfe, Executive Director of Education, Church of England and acclaimed author. Andy has a wealth of leadership experience and currently oversees nationally the programmes, networks and research of the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership – working with thousands of school leaders across the country. Andy is committed to combining rich theological reflection with the most incisive and creative approaches to improving Teaching, Learning and Leadership in schools.
This year’s speakers have a broad spectrum of experience in the education sector and will be sharing their creative ideas, stories and strategies to inspire, motivate and challenge our thinking.
