Why is the Education Show important for educational transformation?

“Educating and energising leaders in our schools”
Drew Povey, Former Headteacher, Educating Greater Manchester (Speaker 2019)

“It draws together into one place an opportunity to see opportunities for collaboration and innovation.”
Eileen Milner, Chief Executive and Accounting Officer, Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) (Speaker 2019)

“It’s an opportunity to bring together and celebrate the intrepid, dedicated people who make one of the biggest contributions to our society. The Show reminds us that education will only thrive if it is rooted in sharing and collaboration – not competition and division. Events like this that encourage innovation and spark inspiration are essential for teacher well-being. If we want to keep innovators and creative thinkers in the profession, we have to make sure we don’t suck all the autonomy out of the job. We need to be careful we don’t reduce the job of a teacher to being about “delivering” a curriculum and waiting for instructions about the next big initiative from on high.”
Isabella Wallace, Best-Selling Author, Talk-Less Teaching and Pimp My Lesson (Speaker 2019)

“You get the chance to see things, experience things and talk to people. This face-to-face interaction has become lost slightly in the age of websites and social media, but the Education Show has a vital role to play in helping you really understand products and often more importantly the people behind them!”
Martin Bailey, Digital Enrichment Leader, Lanchester EP Primary School and Director of Animate 2 Educate (Speaker 2019)

“Schools benefit hugely from both challenge and inspiration, which makes the opportunity the Education Show provides to look beyond one’s own school so important”
Richard Selfridge AKA Jack Marwood, Teacher, Author and Blogger, Jack_Marwood's Icing on the Cake blog (Speaker 2019)

Why do you think collaboration is so important in education? 

“No one can achieve anything great alone. To get the best we need to work together to complete, not compete.”
Drew Povey, Former Headteacher, Educating Greater Manchester (Speaker 2019)

“Donne’s right: “No man is an island entire of itself;…if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less” We’re all clods. We should collaborate.”
David Gibbons, English Teacher, Merchant Taylors School, Northwood (Speaker 2019)

“We are stronger together. Every school has the same issues, they just might have a different context. By working together we can learn from each other and improve education for all, not just for some.”
Jon Tait, Deputy Headteacher, Acklam Grange (Speaker 2019)

“Collaboration makes for stronger educational ‘offers’ and reflects the way that we would want young people in particular to experience a good and effective educational experience.”
Eileen Milner, Chief Executive and Accounting Officer, Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) (Speaker 2019)

“We need to continue hauling ourselves out of the destructive legacy of competition and rivalry between schools. A new age is dawning again where schools can embrace what teachers have always known – that working together, learning from and supporting each other is the fastest way to develop.”
Isabella Wallace, Best-Selling Author, Talk-Less Teaching and Pimp My Lesson (Speaker 2019)

“Collaboration is vital in education. The range of experiences and skills that children need is vast. Need to collaborate and pool expertise so that that children get the greatest breadth and range of experiences that prepare them for future life.”
Martin Bailey, Digital Enrichment Leader, Lanchester EP Primary School and Director of Animate 2 Educate (Speaker 2019)

“Working in a school is so all-encompassing, it’s often very easy to miss the bigger picture; collaborating with others beyond the school gates bring fresh impetus and ideas to every setting”
Richard Selfridge AKA Jack Marwood, Teacher, Author and Blogger, Jack_Marwood's Icing on the Cake blog (Speaker 2019)
