St Albans School Forum on Education 2018

Date:
May 12, 2018

The third annual SASFE conference takes place on Saturday 12th May and will explore ‘Questions and Questioning’ in education. Intentionally smaller-scale in design with only a limited number of places available, fostering a warm, engaging and friendly atmosphere. Conversations and ideas can therefore develop throughout the day with plenty of time set aside over coffee and lunch. We are a strictly not-for-profit conference, ticket prices are stunningly low at £27 (plus booking fee) and include on-site parking, refreshments and lunch in addition to the high quality CPD from actual classroom teachers and school leaders).

A variety of teachers from the state and independent sectors will be speaking and leading seminars. Three keynotes are delivered during the day and we are delighted to confirm that they are:

  • Dr Caroline Creaby, Deputy Head at Sandringham School and leader of the Research School
  • Dr Nick Dennis, History Teacher, Reader and Writer.
  • Dr Bettina Hohnen, Neuropsychologist specialising in the relationship between brain and behaviour.
  • Seminar leaders include; Rebecca Baxter, Hélène Galdin-O’Shea, Allana Gay, Phoebe Greenway, Greg Hacksley, Stephen Lockyer, Matt Pinkett, Sam Pullan, Daniel Sabato.

    Do not delay, book a ticket today! If you would prefer to be sent a printed invoice please email forum@st-albans.herts.sch.uk.

    Still not convinced?! Check out our delegate feedback from previous years:

    “The whole thing was great. Each speaker brought something quite different to the table… I enjoyed being able to take some ideas away from all sessions I attended – every single one gave me a practical idea to take away that I could implement or adapt. Importantly, they have all had an influence on my thinking and my approach; on my philosophy. I was really impressed!”

    “I enjoyed the keynote speakers but also liked the very open nature of the breakout sessions where sharing of good practice by colleagues gave a number of useful things to think about as well as use in my lessons the very next week.”

    “There was a refreshing honesty about what we both know and don’t know about education. Speakers were engaging and clear.”

    “As I so often find to be the case the most beneficial parts of this conference were those where the opportunity for discussion with staff from a variety of backgrounds/viewpoints was provided. In particular, I found the inclusion of a student in one of the discussions to be most thought provoking.”

    “I find it difficult to fault, the organisation was excellent, the fact that there is a small number of delegates make it more intimate and somewhat calmer than some events I have attended.”
