We are delighted to invite you to the Teaching Schools South West ‘Summer Conference’ 2021. Building on the fantastic feedback from the 300 delegates who attended last year’s event, we are pleased to offer colleagues an enhanced online conference experience, delivered live and with real time interaction between delegates and speaker.

Our commitment: provide schools in the South West with a quality of conference that matches the best of any leading national educational body. We have a stunning line-up of presenters this year, providing over 20 sessions, delivered live across two half days.

It is a privilege to welcome Dylan Wiliam to open the conference. Dylan has been one of the most influential authors of the last three decades, shaping education policy both in the UK and internationally. We welcome back inspirational speakers from our previous conferences, including Becky Allen, Naureen Khalid and Clare Sealy. We are delighted to welcome new speakers as well, like Linbert Spencer, Marc Rowland, Vivienne Porritt / Bukky Yusuf, and Lee Elliott Major / Anne-Marie Sim (to name just a few).

The conference is themed around the key issues today: disadvantaged pupils, diversity, use of evidence, use of technology, literacy and mental health. We have inspirational school leaders Ed Vainker (Reach Academy, Feltham) and Izzy Ambrose (Principal of Yate Academy) sharing their school improvement journeys. We hope the conference enables colleagues to feel enriched, informed and inspired.

The conference is open to everyone: school leaders, governors, teachers, researchers and other educational professionals are warmly invited to attend. The keynotes and workshops have been selected to cover both primary and secondary.

This is a not-for-profit event. Income from ticket sales and advertising will (fingers crossed) cover the cost of production, presenters and administration.

Conference includes:

- Special Keynote from Professor Dylan Wiliam
- 20 inspiring sessions from leading international, national and regional experts in education
- Chance to ask questions during the event to presenters in a virtual setting
- Opportunity to watch recordings of all keynotes and presentations after the event for a limited period

Cost: Trainee Teachers - £25 | TSSW Members - £50 | Other colleagues - £75
You will receive an invoice from Exeter Consortium & TSA for this event.
