For Schools: educational CONFERENCE 2023


A conference for educational leaders and governors which will provide practical strategies to engage all learners.

We are teaming up with Independent Thinking to bring you a conference on how to level the playing field in your classroom and give ALL children the start in life they deserve. We have some of the education sector’s leading specialists joining us on the day to share their expertise.

Being ‘powered by equity’ means all pupils, without exception, are encouraged to develop the essential knowledge and skills that helps them to flourish, thrive and ultimately, succeed in life. This conference aims to ensure that our offer for children, young people and adults  is inclusive and equitable for all. It aims to challenge and disrupt our thinking about some of the reasons why some children struggle with learning and how we can rethink and reframe this. 

In recognition that education is a key pillar in children and young people’s lives, at conference, we are seeking to explore how our role as educators can harness true learning potential and build aspiration for all. We aim to empower staff to be proactive, think creatively and transform the chances of every individual in our care. We are keen to consider how elements of the current educational landscape, as well as the potential themes of diversity, inclusion, mental health, wellbeing, and attendance, could be woven into the wider theme of celebrating and developing pedagogical approaches to teaching and learning for all children, especially for children who may struggle with formal schooling. 

You will leave this conference armed with practical strategies you can use in the classroom the next day. We aim for delegates to feel inspired, galvanised, and hopeful that their work is truly transformative in our endeavour to make learning, in its widest sense, in every context, count for all.
