Event description


"This was the best conference I have attended for many years. It was fantastic value for money. It was so good to meet with other new heads. All the workshops were well delivered and informative. I came away feeling inspired and more confident in my new role."
Sharon Wiltshire, Co-Head Teacher

Aimed at those new to headship, or those aspiring to be a head teacher, the New and Aspiring Heads' Conference is designed to help you build the skills you need to move forwards in your career. On becoming a new head we know that you’ll have competing priorities; we think you should prioritise your professional development to equip you in your new role. 100% of last year's attendees said that this conference met its stated objectives, provided value for money and would recommend it to a colleague. Part of the day is dedicated to networking on matters of the moment which will allow you to discuss some of the key changes and developments being proposed by Government and Ofsted, and what those might mean for you in your role.

"Superb day, inspiring and providing this newly appointed Head teacher with plenty to take on and move forward. With a clear and concise message as to the importance of strength in headship, yet not to the detriment of your whole life. The whole positivity of the day reflects my own personal belief as to how I do my job. Good to see that the NAHT can promote the value of the personality of a HT makes such a difference on a school."
John Logue, Deputy Head Teacher
