In our rapidly developing education system the range of organisations being governed is more diverse than ever – ranging from single small primary schools to large Multi Academy Trusts governing numerous schools.

Creativity and Innovation (Cancelled)

Creativity is not just a superpower possessed by a select few people; everyone has creative potential! Being creative is about thinking up new ideas, looking at things from a different perspective, and trying something new. It is a skill you can develop with practice and a process you can manage.

At this time in the public sector, we need to think differently, adopt different approaches, work in different ways, seek new solutions and look at things from a new perspective. We need to move away from tradition and custom to radically rethink our approach.
