This session will explore the practical realities of teaching and school management – what does it look like today and what it could look like in the future. We’ll ask the question ‘what is keeping teachers awake at night’ and what can industry partners do to support.

 

 

The educational landscape is changing at a rapid pace. We only need to look back on this time last year to see how different it is. During these unprecedented times, businesses in the education sector need to be agile and find new and innovative ways to engage and do business with educators. 

 Join a panel of senior school and local authority leaders as we surface:

  • What is it like in schools today and what are schools planning for
  • Distancing, bubbles and the wider theme of compliance generally
  • What ‘good’ companies are doing that makes teachers want to speak to them (and what’s turning teachers off!)
  • What qualities are teachers looking for in companies
  • How will schools engage with companies going forward (what do schools want/need from them!)
  • How will companies communicate (mail, email, calls to the office, social media, teacher groups)
  • If you were CEO of an educational company (you decide!), what advice/mandates would you set your sales, marketing, professional development or operational teams.
