The Big Up Education Conversation

On the evening of 28th March 2019 join Lord John Bird Founder of The Big Issue and other brilliant speakers for The Big Up  Education Conversation

The Big Education Conversation will

Unify

Bring together individuals and organisations who have a shared interest in better preparing young people for their future. Together they can have open, honest and constructive conversations about education

 

Amplify

Through these conversations we seek to amplify examples of excellent practice happening across the system, as well as amplifying what emerges from these conversations (e.g. what actions? where do people agree/have differing views?

Activate

Through these face-to-face conversations we can inspire and equip people and organisations to take action in their communities (local and national) to better prepare young people for their futures

“It is time for a National, rational debate on how we help our young people succeed. ”  

Paul Deschler,   President of CBI

BLINKS – School-led Peer Review

Come and spend a day learning about BLINKS; a distinctive approach to school-led, peer-to-peer school self-evaluation and improvement. On Thursday 7th February 2019, this training will show headteachers how to successfully carry out BLINKS with a cluster or family of schools. This thoughtful and creative self-evaluation process helps schools to celebrate what’s good and great and values what colleagues are doing. Hosted at The Spinney Primary School in Cambridge, Roy Blatchford CBE will walk us through this distinctive and robust approach.  Places are limited so booking early is strongly recommended.  Lunch will be provided.

EmpathyLab

the power of words to build empathy and action
Empathy Day training for schools

Make the most of Empathy Day, and work towards a whole school approach using books to integrate empathy education into existing school priorities

Come to a first-step training day with EmpathyLab, founders of Empathy Day; our aim is to build children’s empathy and social activism through a more systematic use of high quality literature. With 10 primary school partners we have spent the last three years testing new approaches. 100% of teachers report impact on six key empathy skills plus children’s reading frequency, range and enjoyment. 86% report impact on expressive writing, speaking and listening. Other impacts include improvements in wellbeing, family involvement, school culture and social action. See report www.empathylab.uk/schools. We are now opening up the EmpathyLab to new partner schools, offering training to help schools lay the foundations for schools’ empathy strategies and work towards a major celebration of Empathy Day, 11 June 2019.
