EdCon 2021: planning for the future

FREE

01 - 02 December 2021

EdCon is back and this year it’s free!

EdCon 2021 is Browne Jacobson’s virtual conference for schools and academy trusts.

Taking place over two days this December, EdCon 2021 will provide you with inspirational ideas, up-to-date advice and guidance, and networking opportunities. The theme for this year’s event is ‘planning for the future’. Whether your focus is organisational or personal growth, maximising student outcomes or organisational efficiencies, or consolidating with another trust as you seek to retire, EdCon has something for you.

EdCon 2021 is designed for practising and aspiring senior leaders, HR professionals of all levels and those with specialist education roles including (but not exclusively) DSLs, DPOs, Chairs of Governing Boards, trustees and School Business Managers.

Each day you will receive direct access to our award-winning legal and HR specialists via short, engaging live keynotes and workshops. You will also benefit from access to a vast array of on-demand content for 30 days to enable you to design a programme that works around your own work and personal commitments.

Whether you join us from your office or the sofa, EdCon 2021 promises to deliver both strategic and practical solutions that can be implemented in your schools and across academy trusts. Don’t miss out!

Schedule of activity

Our aim is to provide you with a learning programme that is relevant to the challenges you face today and helps you to keep one eye on the future.

EdCon 2021 will bring you all of the high-quality content, speakers and experience of our HR for Education and Education Law Conferences in one online location.

Each day there will be up to three hours of live content that you can watch and participate in. Keynotes will stream live at 10am and 1.20pm daily. These will be 30 minutes in duration, including 10 minutes of questions and answers. You will also have a choice of four one-hour-long workshops each day, which will run simultaneously at 11am and 2.15pm.

We are busy finalising the programme at the moment, but it will include thought-provoking and inspiring keynotes, as well as practical workshops where you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts with others and take away ideas that you could implement in your organisation. Topics will include:

  • Attracting talent with fair executive renumeration
  • Building works and capital projects in schools
  • Diversity and inclusion – the two sides of every story
  • Judicial reviews, independent panels and decision making
  • Keeping children safe
  • Managing and supporting those involved in peer-on-peer abuse claims
  • MAT inspections
  • Offsite education - exercising your powers
  • Outsourcing, smarter procurement and contracting to avoid risks
  • Senior leadership succession planning
  • Supporting non-binary pupils in a world full of misinformation and limited statutory guidance
  • The do’s and don'ts of school finance
  • The ongoing ramifications of COVID-19 – supporting your students’ mental health

All live sessions will be recorded and available exclusively on-demand for 30 days, alongside lots of on-demand content including ‘light-bite’ information, advice and guidance.
