NACE Leadership Conference 2020 Understanding more able learners: key drivers to inform policy and practice

Interactive online event I 16 - 20 November 2020

Amidst the many questions and challenges thrown up by the pandemic, both short- and long-term, there is a need for schools to remain ambitious in teaching and learning – prioritising wellbeing alongside an ambitious, creative, collaborative approach that allows young people not only to “recover”, but to truly thrive.

This is the context for this year’s NACE Leadership Conference – an interactive online event which explores five key aspects to help schools develop effective practice for more able learners in the current climate. Taking a holistic view of the learner, and addressing current challenges and priorities, the event provides authoritative keynotes alongside opportunities for senior peer-to-peer exchange.

Delegates will gain insights from NACE’s national research project “Making Space for More Able Learners” and hear from leading figures as they explore the latest thinking around perfectionism, wellbeing, barriers to achievement, and digital technologies – all issues of particular relevance for schools this year. The final “lunch and learn” session will focus on the role of school leaders in creating the climate for challenge, with the opportunity to hear directly from headteachers who participated in the NACE research project.

PLUS: attending schools will receive a printed copy of the NACE research publication – exploring the principles of cognitive challenge and how to put these into practice.

How does it work?

The programme is a series of five online sessions across the week. Purchasing a conference pass allows for one participant to attend each live session, but for added flexibility, it does not have to be the same person attending each time, allowing you to share conference participation amongst your leadership team if you wish. Additional conference passes can be purchased to allow wider remote access, or you can purchase a recording of the main sessions if you are unable to join us live.
