We are delighted to announce that all teachers and practitioners in the Northern Alliance will once again have funded access to this year’s World Education Summit.
The World Education Summit will take place from 21 to 24 March 2022. Free registration for teachers and practitioners across the Northern Alliance’s eight council areas will open in mid-February and more information on how to register will be coming soon. Sessions will be recorded and accessible through Summit Central alongside a great number of associated resources for a year following the conference until March 2023.
Keep up to date with all the latest pointers on this year’s Summit, through our WES Padlet which you can access via the Northern Alliance SharePoint site on Glow (login required) or through your local authority professional learning lead. This includes the unique registration link all practitioners across the Northern Alliance can use to sign up. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Why attend the World Education Summit?
The World Education Summit provides an opportunity for educators across the world to connect with one another and share in the latest educational research and practices.
Signing up gives you the chance to have flexible access to high quality professional learning as well as new opportunities to connect and collaborate across schools, clusters, authorities and the Northern Alliance and beyond, to continue to improve outcomes for our children and young people.
The World Education Summit will take place across four days, covering 10 themes across 10 different virtual stages. There will be opportunities to join the Educators’ Platform where you can hear directly from the authors of educational books as well as a Training Stage where teachers and middle leaders can access highly practical strategies and approaches to use the very next day.
In partnership with World Education Summit organisers, our Northern Alliance officers are putting together a bespoke package for practitioners across the Northern Alliance. Having access to keynotes from presentations will enable breakout rooms for practitioners from our local areas to get together for discussions and follow up opportunities in our unique context.
Kathleen Johnston, Northern Alliance Quality Improvement Manager, said: “We are honoured to be a Scottish voice on the world stage as part of the World Education Summit. This event is a fantastic opportunity to listen to new ideas, make connections with colleagues, and learn how to apply educational tools and resources at a localised level in your school. We hope the resources and learning opportunities presented will be beneficial to all who attend.
“We are excited to participate in the World Education Summit and to continue collaborating across schools, local authorities and borders to improve support for children and young people.”
