Empowering Education Leaders

Maths — No Problem! Summit

Join us for Maths — No Problem! Summit 2023
Empowering Education Leaders

We’re delighted to welcome school leaders to this exclusive event that will focus on thought leadership in the areas of school culture, pedagogical beliefs, effective communication and teacher retention strategies.
There will also be lively discussions on what recent announcements by the current and shadow governments suggest may be next for primary mathematics — and what this could mean for all of us.
Summit 2023 will bring together school leaders, authors, founders and mathematics specialists to explore ways of improving UK education by applying a lens of global best practices. Delegates will share ideas as an active community with an eye to reaching the ‘next level’ of leadership.
The content of the sessions is appropriate for head teachers, SLT, assessment leads and maths leads. It will also be of interest to a teaching professional who is about to move into a senior role.
