Description

What's in it for me?

Back by popular demand, the next series of the Innovate My School LIVE roadshow focuses on how schools today are doing more with less, and how they can continue to innovate in spite of squeezed budgets.

Hosted by the forward-thinking Essa Academy on the 23rd November, this event will bring together senior leaders from across the Greater Manchester to share best practice, develop new ideas and make meaningful partnerships.

We will be encouraging attendees to share their stories at the event and filming on-the-spot Innovation Burst videos which will be later shared with our online community. Lurkers are also welcome as there will be lots of ideas to take away and glean from this event.

There will also be two opportunities to speed date during the day. Ten innovative companies have been handpicked by us with the brief of supporting schools to do more with less.


Who should go?

Any senior leader in the region who wants to learn from peers and forward thinking companies, about tried and tested practices and products that will help them innovate their budget.

Headteachers
Business Managers
Deputy Headteachers
Assistant Headteachers
SLT
Subject Leaders
Curriculum / Phase Coordinators


Speed dating, what’s that all about?

As pioneers of speed dating in the education sector, with over 150 events under our belt, we have proven speed dating to be a fast-moving, fun, effective format for meeting a range of innovative products in a short space of time. For more information, visit our speed date page.


How much does it cost to attend?

This event is free of charge for up to two delegates per school and includes breakfast, refreshments and an executive lunch. Tickets will go fast, so book yours in advance!


Who are the providers?

This is a surprise! Each of the 10 non-competing suppliers have been selected based on the brief of supporting schools to innovate their budget. This could be through solutions that create cost savings, help to open up other revenue streams or are proven to support student outcomes.
