Brooke Weston Trust CEO and Teachers Deliver Workshops at Education Conference
Our Trust CEO and several members of Brooke Weston Trust teaching staff delivered workshops at Educating Northants, a conference which attracted hundreds of teaching professionals.
The event, which took place at the University of Northampton, was an opportunity for educationalists from across the county and beyond to talk about current issues, network and share best practice.
Keynote speakers included Professor Dame Alison Peacock, Sir David Carter, Martin Robinson and Oliver Caviglioli. There were more than 110 separate workshops run throughout the day on 18 different strands including Teaching and Learning, Assessment, Leadership and Inclusion.
Cristina Taboada-Naya, Director of the Brooke Weston Trust Teaching School, was a member of the steering group which set up the one-day event. She said: “The #EducatingNorthants conference was a huge success and it gave teachers and educationalists from across the spectrum a chance to take part in really high quality workshops, debate and networking.
“Thanks to all the speakers, especially those from the Brooke Weston Trust, including CEO Dr Andrew Campbell and Becks Waterson and Matt Rodger from Brooke Weston Academy who all embraced the opportunity to share their expertise.”
Speaking afterwards, Andy Buffham from Peckover Primary School said: “It was a totally awesome day. I caught up with some colleagues from the Trust, met some lovely people and was inspired by amazing speakers.”
Trust CEO Dr Andrew Campbell said: “It was fantastic to see so many people coming together across the county and beyond, wanting to learn how better to work together and to collaborate.”
