conference shines regional spotlight on education

20 February 2014

Conference shines regional spotlight on education The challenges facing schools in the South-West will be firmly in the spotlight at a major regional conference in March.

Upto 70 delegates, including headteachers, HR managers and school business managers from across the region, are set to converge on St James School in Exeter on 6th March for the free conference, the first by education law firm Browne Jacobson since it opened its Exeter office back in August 2012.

The conference has been designed specifically to cater for senior leadership teams within primary and secondary schools and will look at a range of topical issues including performance related pay, governance, sickness and absences, academies and managing the school estate.

Julia Green, education partner at Browne Jacobson in Exeter, said:

"This is our first regional conference in the South West and is an opportunity for delegates to get involved in discussions and updates on a range of issues affecting schools today as identified by school leaders in a national survey carried out by Browne Jacobson last autumn.

"The education sector has seen some dramatic changes in the last few years which mean many schools have to deal with issues and challenges that they have never had to face head on before.

"For others the sheer pace at which the landscape is changing can be daunting and leaves them feeling vulnerable.

"This conference tackles these concerns and will provide a mixture of key note speeches and interactive workshops to equip delegates with the knowledge and practical tools to help them be proactive in dealing with the challenges that they face."

Leading education lawyers from Browne Jacobson will be accompanied by representatives from Bishop Fleming Accountants, NPS Property Consultants, Aspire, an 11-strong multi-academy trust based in Cornwall and the National Governors Association. The experts will also be on hand to answer any bespoke questions delegates may have.

Attendance at the conference on Thursday 6 March is free and anyone wanting more information should contact Julia Green on 01392 458727 or visit education-advisors.com
