We are delighted to be working in collaboration with the University of Huddersfield for our final #LearningFirst conference. Following last year’s very successful Partnership Conference, the University of Huddersfield is again running a conference on Thursday 5 July for mentors and partnership schools, this year in collaboration with #LearningFirst @Beyond Levels. Dame Alison Peacock of the Chartered College of Teaching will be delivering a keynote address, with workshops from a range of national speakers, as well as from their partnership schools. The indomitable Ros Wilson, author of Big Writing will be closing the day with her reflections of over 50 years in education – ‘If I’d only knew then what I know now.’ – not to be missed!
Throughout the day, there will be a strong focus on mentoring and on ‘learning first’ for both trainees and mentors, exploring how mentoring can provide excellent CPD. With a focus on ‘mentoring as CPD’ partnership colleagues will share their ‘mentoring journeys’ and trainees will reflect on ‘being mentored’ as they launch their own careers.
In what promises to be a popular event we will also be showcasing a range of excellent educational practice which is taking place in partner schools and nationally. Topics covered will be as diverse as restorative justice, literacy and oracy, working with children with autism, mindfulness for children and White Rose maths. The conference is open to all Primary, Secondary and EYFS colleagues.
Local colleagues are advised to secure their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, as it is likely that there will be very strong interest once the event is advertised nationally.
Tickets are just £5.00 and include lunch and refreshments. You can secure your ticket here.
