Rising to the challenge, looking forward with optimism

2 June 2020

This webinar took place on Monday 1 June 2020 and is now available on-demand.

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the country, including our schools and young people. Like others the sectors leaders have been working at pace, collaborating with Government, Local Government and their learning communities to adapt to the disruption and to try to protect our young people’s access to education.

In this webinar we will be hosting a live panel discussion to look at how schools and trusts have risen to the challenges and navigated the disruption caused by the current coronavirus outbreak. We will also be exploring with the panel their hopes for the future and their ideas on the opportunities the sector should take moving forwards. We will then finish with a Q&A session.

We are delighted to welcome to the panel for the discussion:

  • Leora Cruddas, Chief Executive, Confederation of School Trusts
  • Joy Madeiros, Global Chief Executive, Oasis
  • Luke Sparkes, Executive Director Dixons Academies Trust
  • Dan Nicholls, Executive Director of Education, Cabot Learning Federation.

The discussion will be chaired by Nick MacKenzie, a partner at Browne Jacobson.
