Policy Forum for Northern Ireland

Next steps for sustainable schools policy: implementing area plans, increasing collaboration and improving leadership

TO BE PUBLISHED February 2018


The first in a two-part series from the Policy Forum for Northern Ireland on the future for education policy, this seminar will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to examine challenges for improving school sustainability and priorities for the Education Authority’s Strategic Area Plans.


Timed as the Education Authority completes its first annual Strategic Area Plan - and as work continues for the 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020-2023 area plans - delegates will examine the next steps in the process of reviewing and re-shaping education provision in Northern Ireland - assessing the latest thinking on the development of sustainable schools policy and the shape of education provision for the future.


Those attending will discuss options for addressing provision where sustainability is an issue - including the potential for greater collaboration between schools and the future role of community engagement in improving sustainability and educational outcomes.


They will also examine the latest thinking on priorities for ensuring sustainable, high quality education in schools - including in the continued development of outstanding teachers and school leaders; encouraging cooperation at all levels of school leadership; meeting the requirements of priority geographical areas and ensuring staff wellbeing.
