Hays brings together senior education professionals to discuss leadership challenges

21 July 2014

Hays, the leading recruiting expert, hosted an education forum at Broadway School in Perry Barr, Birmingham attracting over 55 head teachers from local primary and secondary schools to discuss current hot topics in education.

The forum gave the opportunity to the attendees to discuss the themes around the challenges of school leadership. Sir Tim Brighouse, former Chief Education Officer in Birmingham and Oxfordshire and visiting Professor at the Institute of Education, and David Cameron, Chair of the York Education Partnership, were the keynote speakers at the event.

The leadership forum was titled ‘Leading in Impossible Times’. During the seminar, Sir Tim and David discussed the challenges that head teachers face and the rewarding experience of working with young people and playing an important role in their lives.

Michelle Storer, Director for Hays Education in Birmingham, organised the event and commented: “We were pleased to welcome over 55 head teachers from local primary and secondary schools to this event. The seminar delivered by Sir Tim Brighouse and David Cameron was highly thought provoking and the feedback from head teachers who attended has been extremely positive. School leadership is an on-going challenge for senior education professionals and it is vitally important to them to be able to share thoughts and best practice on this subject.”
