Hays Education
, the leading recruiting expert, hosted an education forum on 13 May, at the Said Business School in Oxford attracting over 35 headteachers and school leaders from local primary and secondary schools to discuss current focuses within education including school funding, behavioural issues and how to ensure the best teachers continue to work in Oxford schools.

The forum gave attendees the opportunity to discuss the themes around creating the right classroom environment for pupils to learn in. Sir Tim Brighouse, former chief education officer in Oxfordshire and Birmingham and visiting professor at the Institute of Education, and David Cameron, Chair of the York Education Partnership, were the keynote speakers at the event.

During the seminar, Sir Tim and David discussed the topic of leadership in schools to help pupils thrive and also encouraged teachers to share their own classroom successes and their own methods to engage children in their classes.

Jeni Jones, Business Director for Hays Education hosted the event and commented: “We were pleased to welcome over 35 headteachers from local primary and secondary schools to this event. Sir Tim Brighouse and David Cameron's speeches were highly thought provoking and sparked some excellent debate and ideas sharing from the headteachers who attended.”

Sarah McGuire, Senior Consultant at Hays Education, said: “We were delighted to see so many Heads at the inaugural Hays Education Leadership Forum in Oxfordshire.  Since our launch in January 2015, we have received a very positive response from schools, teachers and heads alike and demand for teaching professionals has been very high.  Based here in Oxford, we are dedicated to recruiting Secondary, Special Educational Needs & Primary Teaching Professionals across Oxfordshire and look forward to developing further our relationship with the educational community in our region.
