Webinar series | Stronger together

19th to 30th April 2021

Placing the leadership development of teaching staff as a key priority

This is the first time we have hosted our North Tyneside Leadership Conference as a virtual event, and as you can see from the schedule, we are bringing you a wide variety of stimulating and thoughtful presentations, workshops and networking events.

This is an event that provides an opportunity for participants from across the North East region to meet, listen to, and discuss developments across a broad range of topics, reflecting in particular on what has been learned over the past year, and on how recent events present opportunities for us all to change what we do in years to come.

Innovative Solutions

The presenters at this year's conference hail from a wide range of backgrounds, from mentors to adventurers, and from business management to school leadership, but what they all have in common is a call to action and a call to innovate, collaborate, and share. Now might be just the right time to think different, reflect on bold ideas, and consider innovative solutions.

Supporting Future Strategy

The timings and range of different types of events has been designed to allow senior teams within our schools to be able to watch and listen together, so that ideas and reflections can be shared and discussed, hopefully supporting future strategy and facilitating innovative practical solutions in the future.

We are looking forward to this event bringing together like-minded educators - teachers, leaders, and education visionaries who are focused on delivering the best education and care for our children, on practising honest, moral  school leadership, on engaging students in real-world learning opportunities, and on looking at emerging innovations in teaching and learning.

We are looking forward to you joining us for dynamic dialogue on the evolution of work and the reflection and resilience needed to thrive in uncertain times ahead.

Imperfect Leadership in Uncertain Times

Professor Steve Munby

How do we lead during this unprecedently challenging period?  And what might we help to change for the better when the pandemic is over? Based on his experience of working with many different education systems around the world, Steve will argue that the best way forward at this time is for school leaders to apply the principles of “imperfect leadership”.  He will also argue that we can build something even better as we come out of the pandemic – a more connected and collectively responsible education system with a reduced focus on top-down accountability.

Andy is a qualified teacher, wellbeing expert and ‘recovering academic’. His Loughborough University PhD was 12 years in the making and he revels in the irony that his thesis on human flourishing actually ended up making him miserable. The reward for grinding out his PhD is that Andy gets to call himself a ‘Doctor of Happiness’. Don’t worry, he’s socially aware enough to understand that it’s a terribly cheesy title, but a notch above the socially unacceptable alternative, ‘Doctor Feelgood’.

Jonathan Peach

Jonathan did that usual thing of spending decades working in leadership and consultancy roles where everything was just fine. Until one day it dawned on him that ‘fine’ probably wasn’t anywhere near good enough? So he set about raising his personal bar to ‘brilliant’ and the rest, as they say, is history.

Networking: Disadvantaged: Poverty proofing through cultural capital

With School Improvement Officer Josh Hukin

Time: 10.00 – 11.00

This network will look to explore whole school strategy for the development of pupils’ cultural capital so that our most disadvantaged children and young people are not left behind. In a period of economic uncertainty and increasing numbers of children living in poverty, what can we do to ensure the curriculum allows all pupils to develop cultural capital and how do these strategies specifically support the disadvantaged?

How can we make sure we plug the gaps exacerbated by school closures in order to mitigate against future impact? How can we use cultural capital to best prepare our pupils for a successful post 16 pathway? For schools who have worked with ‘Children North East’ this network will provide an opportunity to share and develop best practice of poverty proofing the school day and beyond.
