Autumn Leadership Conference 2020

A series of five online sessions covering national policy between 12 and 16 October plus regional sessions w/c 2 November

The 2020/21 academic year will pose significant challenges for school, college and trust leaders as the implications of the coronavirus situation and the ‘new normal’ continue to impact strategic planning and all areas of teaching, learning and operations.  

Building on our highly successful Regional Information Conferences, our Autumn Regional Leadership Conference will aim to address many of these challenges from both a national policy and a regional impact perspective with the latest insights from the ASCL Policy Specialist, Member Support and Regional teams.

The conference will also look ahead and share thinking about how leaders can shape not only the future of their own school, college or trust but also influence the broader education landscape.

Sessions will be hosted by ASCL General Secretary Geoff Barton with opportunities for participants to submit questions in advance and during the sessions.

The ASCL Autumn Regional Leadership Conference costs £99 for members and £125 for non-members for one participant ‘live’ on each of the five national policy sessions plus one regional session. A recording of each session will also be forwarded for you and your team to view afterwards. For added flexibility, a different member of your team can attend each of the live sessions if you wish.

Additional panellists will be announced shortly.
