Context


Over the last few years, there have been considerable changes to our education system.


With the de-centralisation of educational provision and an increase in the delegation of powers to schools, values that are more akin to the business world have had a significant impact on the policies and practices in our schools today.


Some have managed to navigate the changes successfully, for others it continues to be an uphill struggle. With far too many teachers and school leaders having to constantly find ways to marry their principles, with those of a system that frequently appears to operate with values that are diametrically opposed to their own.


Sadly, shrinking budgets, growing workloads and rising personal accountability, have only served to exacerbate the situation and unfortunately, there are far too many teachers and school leaders who have chosen to leave the profession or have simply ‘disappeared’


We want to do our part to address this situation in our schools, to reinvigorate the profession and help our school leaders connect back to their deep sense of vocation, passion and purpose!


That’s why on the 17th October 2019, we will host our 3rd “Education for the Soul” Conference, for Headteachers & School Leaders from across the country around the theme of “Inspiring Authentic School Leadership.”


It is our hope that those who attend will leave feeling truly inspired to embrace their own unique leadership approach; one that is truly authentic, supportive of their values, builds resilience and enables them to best utilise their strengths and gifts.





Why Authenticity?


This year’s conference will focus around the theme of “Inspiring Authentic School Leadership,” very simply because we know that great leadership comes from the heart.


It cannot be reduced to simply a matter of technique or style, but rather it comes from the very identity and integrity of every individual who has chosen to wear the mantle of school leadership.


Moreover, we know that the majority of school leaders are not driven by data, numbers or spreadsheets. We know that instead, their motivation comes from within; from the very core of who they are, their values and their sense of vocation and purpose.


That’s why building an authentic approach to school leadership is so important. If our leaders are to succeed and stay in the profession for the long-haul then they need to be supported to develop the leadership practices that will help to sustain them.


They also need safe and collegiate spaces that will enable them to explore what authenticity means in the lives of school leaders today, which is exactly what October’s conference will provide.




The Speakers

Featuring expert talks from authors and storytellers such as Lemn Sissay, Kevin Graal and James Pope, the conference will explore what authenticity means in the life of a school leader today and how leaders can stay true to themselves, their values, passion and purpose.
