THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will bring out key issues for education policy in Northern Ireland.
The conference takes place as officials in key Government departments and agencies consider options for policy - looking particularly at improving standards and next steps in developing the curriculum and models of assessment - and as the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee conducts its inquiry into education funding.
It will bring out latest thinking from key stakeholders on the way forward for tackling inequalities and educational underachievement - including in groups such as Protestant, working-class boys.
Delegates will also discuss new approaches to improving school standards, the next steps in self-evaluation, challenges for engaging with communities and parents, and opportunities for delivering change through effective school leadership.
Further sessions consider the future for the curriculum in Northern Ireland - meeting the needs of pupils, employers and the wider economy - and will look at the part that schools can play in shaping and delivering the curriculum, including through mutual collaboration.
