Description

How can we help young people today become effective global citizens tomorrow?

This year’s conference for school leaders from all sectors takes place against the backdrop of everything that Brexit has involved, and the day before its planned date. Whatever may have happened by then, what we have all been through highlights the urgency of equipping all our young people better to understand and shape their futures in a fast-changing world. We also have to do this against the backdrop of an unprecedented combination of serious pressures on our school system.

The way we as leaders respond to all this will be crucial and the day is intended to help us think our way through a number of critical questions:

  • What do we know about the likely impact of global change over the short to medium term for young people in our schools today?

  • What changes to how and what they learn might school leaders sensibly look to make in response to that?

  • How can we lead change effectively in the light of the multiple practical day-to-day challenges confronting schools?

  • What can we as school leaders learn from the rest of the world about equipping young people to thrive as they grow up to make their way in the world?

  • In what ways do we need to change as a result?

Our keynote presenters, Richard Gerver, author of 'Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today' and Lucy Crehan, author of 'Cleverlands', will bring their unique global insights drawn from knowledge of schools and the world of busineess to help us grapple with these questions.

A parallel conference is being held at the same time for student leaders from Schools of Tomorrow Fellowship schools, also with input from both Lucy and Richard.
