ASCL Leading Conversations Series - Professor Samantha Twiselton OBE


Join us for our series of insightful conversations on leadership with guests from across the education community and beyond.

Our new series of online CPD sessions will explore the key issues facing the education system, with expert guests offering their thoughts on addressing these challenges.  They will also share ideas on how leaders can continue to improve the system for the benefit of all children, young people and their communities, as well as those working in the system.

Each session will have a unique focus but across the series there will be common threads including what can be learnt from international practice, how experiences from other industries can be useful in shaping continuous improvement of the education system, and how those in, or aspiring to, executive leadership roles can shape their own development and take care of their wellbeing.

20 October, Professor Sam Twiselton OBE
Policy Priorities for Teacher Development: How do we develop (and hold onto) good teachers?
