East Midlands Colleagues

Booking has now opened for this year’s Pathways to Leadership programme. This is a programme aimed at recently qualified teachers who are secure in their teaching practice and are ready to explore excellence in teaching and a first step into leading others. This year the programme will be held in Leicester (17th November 2017 and 8th March 2018) and Derbyshire (21st November 2017 and 12th March 2018). More information attached.

We are looking for a keynote speaker for this programme to talk about work life balance and resilience for 45 minutes (to discuss the related science and psychology, and to offer practical ideas to support RQTs as they progress in their career). Have you seen a speaker on this topic that you could recommend? If so, please email your suggestion to hayley.carter@sdsa.net Many thanks in anticipation.
