AEPA Conference 2020

The third conference since AEPA started, with two excellent speakers covering very relevant themes in education today.

About this Event
Area-based partnerships, the majority school-led, now operate in many parts of the country. Many have taken on responsibility for the collective performance of schools in their area and all of them act as a driver of improvement to create a stronger local education system. Local councils have acted as ‘midwife’ to these partnerships, using them to address issues of quality and equity which cannot be easily tackled by autonomous schools working alone. Many of these partnerships come together through the AEPA and this is holding its third conference in October with two great speakers. Anyone involved or interested in these partnerships is welcome to join us.
