SELMAS Brains Trust June 3rd⤴

from @ Association of Chartered Teachers Scotland

From Alex. Wood:

BETTER SCHOOL LEADERSHIP: Can our current strategies deliver?

 SELMAS Brains Trust 2: Scottish Education Leadership and SCEL: June 3rd 5.00 – 6.30

 City of Glasgow College

City Campus North Hanover Street

60 North Hanover Street  

Glasgow   G1 2BP

 There is growing evidence that to achieve our collective ambition for Scottish education, we need passionate, inspirational and transformational leadership. In Teaching Scotland’s Future it was argued that this could be supported by the development of  “A virtual college of school leadership”.

 Plans for SCEL are now advancing and a new CEO will be appointed soon.

 The expectations are high: “Given the need to nurture the leadership skills and talents of all teachers, in a culture of distributive leadership, better coordination of resources, support and development would be more efficient and would promote higher quality.  A virtual college of school leadership should be developed to improve leadership capacity at all levels within Scottish education. This facility would provide a dedicated focal point for leadership development in Scotland.”

 Join us for an open discussion on all aspects of educational leadership and on how SCEL will deliver on this aspiration.

Margaret Alcorn (Convenor of SELMAS) will host the event, and Margery McMahon Lead National Co-ordinator for SCEL, Walter Humes, Visiting Professor of Education at the University of Stirling, Danny Murphy, Senior Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, Rodger Hill Education Officer, Dumfries & Galloway Council, and Sue Beattie, headteacher at Belmont Academy in Ayr will contribute their thinking.

We are grateful to Glasgow College for hosting this event, and for the sponsorship received from the Scottish Government.

This is a free event, but you should indicate your intention to attend by returning the booking form to Alex Wood by email at alexander.wood@blueyonder.co.uk
