Description

The Missing Piece

A FREE Skills Education Conference Event

There is a missing piece in our education system that is resulting in students and school leavers not being equipped with the skills and experiences they need to succeed in life. Consequently, teachers and employers are increasingly rating skills more important than good grades to improve students’ life chances.

Intended Audience: Teachers, School Leaders, Initial Teacher Training Students and Business Partners.

This conference aims to:

  • Introduce teachers, those training to be teachers and ​school leaders to the key concepts and principles of skills education and explore how skills education can be effectively delivered both in lessons and outside of the classroom.

  • Reflect on the positive impact a skill focussed curriculum can have ​on teaching and learning, and the value placed on skills development programmes by employers

  • Further support existing Enabling Enterprise Schools to embed skills education across the school curriculum

  • Explore how partnerships of employers and education can help to prepare students for successful futures

  • Share good practice of building skills in different settings, including in the workplace

  • Provide practical advice and support for Enabling Enterprise business partner colleagues who work alongside students during workplace Enterprise Challenge Days.

  • Provide a valuable ​networking opportunity for educators and business professionals interested in the promotion and development of skills education



Speakers will include:

Alice Faulkener, Head of Prgrammes, Enabling Enterprise

Melanie Elliott, Head Teacher Ss John & Monica Catholic Primary School, Birmingham

Michaela Moore, General Manager, Bullring, Birmingham
