The ‘Collaborative Working for Schools’ conference in September 2010 addresses school partnerships
Under the coalition government schools, local authorities and extended services are all faced with the challenges of getting more for their money. With increasing pressure on limited budgets, the big challenge is to understand how to make the most effective efficiency savings without compromising standards or provision.
Considered and strategic employment of partnership working can often be an ideal option for making such savings. As schools and clusters become increasingly empowered, a confederation of schools can secure economies of scale in CPD provision, commissioning of services and identifying funding opportunities. Many struggling schools have improved by working with more successful establishment through executive headships and shared school business managers. Improvements even extend to the health and wellbeing of the pupils – developed community cohesion and improved behaviour can also be directly attributed to effective partnerships and collaborative working.
Take a look at the full programme of the ‘Collaborative Working for Schools’ conference.
The forthcoming conference, ‘Collaborative Working for Schools’, will bring together experts and practitioners who have seen firsthand how these relationships are delivering significant benefits. Case-studies from schools all across the country will give an insight into the best practice for working collaboratively, and, most importantly, show how the impact and value of these partnerships can be monitored. After all, in the current climate, no-one has the capacity to be doing things to which do not directly and clearly deliver significant benefits.
The ‘Collaborative Working for Schools’ conference will take place on 24 September 2010 in Central London. Delegate places are priced at £229 + VAT, with three delegates attending for the price of two.
