About this event

Join your fellow South East Cultural Education Partnerships for a day of sharing good practice, networking and peer to peer learning.

You'll hear from Artwork's CEO Louise Govier and Arts Council's new South East Area Director, Hazel Edwards. We'll also have keynote talks, including one from Professor Dame Alison Peacock, CEO of the Chartered College of Teaching, plus Stephen Calladine Evans. There'll be plenty of time to share and network with other CEPs too.

Speaker bios:

Professor Dame Alison Peacock

Previously Professor Dame Alison was Executive Headteacher of The Wroxham School in Hertfordshire. Her career to date has spanned primary, secondary and advisory roles. In 2018, she became an Honorary Fellow of Queen's College, Cambridge, one of the first ever female Fellows admitted. She is also a Visiting Professor of both the University of Hertfordshire and Glyndwr University.

Alison will be revisiting the presentation she gave as part of the Supporting Pupil Wellbeing & Reconnecting with Learning through Creativity event in October, targeting it for Cultural Education Leaders.

Stephen Calladine Evans

Stephen is highly experienced in school leadership with 25 years of experience in the classroom and in senior leadership. He has been a governor for 14 years including Chair of Governors and a Local Leader of Governance for East Sussex County Council. He is an education consultant, with a focus on the arts, wellbeing, Maths Hub and STEAM in the curriculum; a high-performance coach for senior leaders; partnership coordinator; and both a programme designer and esteemed facilitator for the Institute of Education (UCL) Leadership programmes.

Stephen’s presentation will focus on the wider system challenges as they roll out, including Teaching Hubs and changes in DFE funding to Local Authorities which could theoretically see every school becoming part of a MAT– therein no longer a CEP discussion with individual head teachers, but how CEPs could focus their advocacy more with Executive Heads. And the role of creativity in post-covid and the possible pivot for external providers toward offering teacher CPD over direct delivery.

As well as speakers and networking time, we'll be hosting breakout sessions in the afternoon, covering the following themes:

- Governance

- Youth Voice

- Non-Arts Partnerships

- Place based funding streams

- Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

- Decolonising the curriculum

- Learning from mistakes

This year, we invite CEP leads (chairs, vice-chairs or co-ordinators) to attend the morning session (11am-12pm), and would like to open out the afternoon session (1-3pm) to the wider CEP community. Please select the sessions you will be attending, and the breakouts you would like to be included in, when booking.

Booking closes at 2:00pm Monday 14th June.
