Description

Rebuilding Our Schools from the Bottom Up

There is a once in a lifetime opportunity in Wales to reshape education. Following the Donaldson review and the OECD Policy Assessment it is clear that business as usual is no longer an option. So how can change be effected in a way that is truly transformative and sustainable?

The key is to involve all the main partners in building a way forward; teachers, parents, children and local people working together with school leaders to develop a vision for their own school.

Join Fiona Carnie and Mike Davies at this workshop to explore ways of

  • developing a new and vibrant vision and practice for your school
  • meeting the needs of children and young people in our challenging world
  • supporting teachers to work in new ways
  • creating a genuine partnership with families and the local community
  • building the confidence of teachers and others in the change process

Drawing on research, inspirational practice and resources to support transformation find out how to create a school which will foster ethical, informed and active citizens of Wales and the world. We will look at how innovative schools in the UK and further afield have developed alternative uses of time, people and contexts to create timetables which meet their aspirations.

This workshop is for senior leaders in both primary and secondary settings. In order to gain maximum benefit it is recommended that two people attend from each school and we welcome the participation of parents, governors and teachers.

Mike Davies is a former head teacher who has pioneered innovative educational approaches in a number of schools. He currently advises local authorities, architects and design teams on school transformation to create purposeful learning environments. He is a founder of both Human Scale Education and the British Curriculum Foundation.

Fiona Carnie is an educationalist and writer who has worked in a range of settings. Her focus is on building the democratic voice and participation of teachers, students and parents to create schools which will contribute to the creation of a fairer and environmentally sustianable world. She is Director of Alternatives in Education and is an adviser to the European Forum for Freedom in Education.

Venue: Birchwood House, University Hall, University of Cardiff

Cost: £150 to include refreshments and a light lunch. A discounted rate of £200 for 2 places is offered.
