Richard Gill – Teaching Schools Council


As the recently appointed Chair of the Teaching Schools Council, I am delighted to be able to say that we are supporting the 2019 Inspiring Leadership Conference.

Having been asked as a TSC Rep to attend the 2018 Conference as a delegate, presenter, speaker and showcaser, it was indisputable that the TSC should be involved in such an impactful event.

As a key partner this year we are pleased to be part of the planning group arranging a fantastic line up of speakers, masterclasses and workshop sessions, led by some of the very best thinkers and speakers.

The Inspiring Leadership Conference is renowned for being an excellent opportunity to reflect, meet with your peers and exchange ideas, all highly crucial activities that we so often find ourselves without the time to do.

I look forward to seeing you all there!

Richard Gill, Chair, Teaching Schools Council

The Chartered College of Teaching supports Inspiring Leadership Conference 2019

We are pleased to announce that Inspiring Leadership Conference 2019 is supported by the Chartered College of Teaching. Here’s what Professor Dame Alison Peacock had to say:

“At the Chartered College of Teaching, we believe expertise in teaching needs to run all the way through the DNA of a school or college. From early career teachers starting their teaching journey right through to school leaders.

We want to see current and future leaders supported to be the best that they can be. For this to happen they need to have the opportunity to build their own knowledge of pedagogy to be in the best possible position to understand what works and to maximise good practice. Not only will this support their own learning but will also benefit their colleagues and the wider profession. We are happy to be a part of the Inspiring Leadership Conference and to play a role in fostering a culture of learning, where the whole profession can engage with the big ideas in education and shape the future of their own profession.”

Inspiring Leadership Conference & Exhibition 2018 : Unveils new two day format

Large conference room

After four successful years we have reviewed the conference content and format following feedback from delegates.

We have decided to change the conference duration from two half days and one full day to two full days. Moving from two half days and one full day to two full days means less time out of school, making it easier for school leaders to attend. The conference will take place on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th June, 2018 once again at the International Convention Centre Birmingham.

An advisory panel formed of school leaders is leading the development of an engaging, relevant and valuable programme and Jane Creasy will continue to facilitate the conference.

The new Inspiring Leadership website will be launched next week with more information about the conference and sponsorship and exhibition opportunities.

Inspiring Leadership will continue to bring together a blend of world class speakers to share their insights into modern leadership, to challenge, inspire and inform our thinking on leadership and provide you with an informative, inspirational and rewarding conference

Registration for the conference will open on 30 October 2017 with publication of the provisional speaker line up.
