Event description
Northern Rocks 2022

About this event

Northern Rocks began back in 2014 when Emma Hardy (now MP) and Debra Kidd were two teachers in search of CPD that made us think but also laugh, belong and feel like we had some kind of place to talk about some of the things that were worrying us about the direction of travel in education. For four years, in sunshine and rain, 500 people gathered in Leeds to do just that and it was with a heavy heart in 2018 we decided to stop. So many events were taking place on Saturdays that we began to feel that we might be adding to, rather than alleviating teacher stress. But we were wrong. People missed it. It turns out that in these stressful times, coming together, connecting and belonging is exactly what people need, so here we are.

Come and join us on June 25th in Headlingly, Leeds at the beautiful Leeds Beckett campus. You’ll hear from teachers, leaders, academics, politicians, policy makers, educationalists and more; you’ll learn, think, possibly disagree, definitely laugh, be moved and might even get a glass of wine.
