By Leaders, for Leaders - January Conference

This event will take place between 9:30am and 12:30pm on 28/01/2020.

It is with great delight that we welcome Sir David Carter as our keynote speaker. Sir David has been at the forefront of education for a great number of years, holding positions including the National Schools Commissioner, Regional Schools Commissioner for the South West, CEO of the Cabot Learning Federation, and Headteacher. Sir David now trains and supports leaders within Ambition School Leadership - what he doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing! We are certain that he will bring great wisdom and inspiration to our conference.

Alongside Sir David stands the usual array of fantastic speakers, many of whom are practicing educational leaders. We are so looking forward to hearing from them on a range of critical topics all aimed at improving the lives of the young people in our schools.
