Speaking at the 7th Annual TEAN Conference, May 2016

I will be one of the keynote speakers at the 7th Annual Teacher Education Advancement Network (TEAN) conference at Aston University in Birmingham on May 5th and 6th next year. Conference details are available here. TEAN is a really interesting organisation and one that takes teacher development and professional education really seriously.

I’m really looking forward to this conference – have been for months. I’ve known that our Ofsted inspection would be over and that I will be able to remove the gaffer tape from my mouth that I have had there for almost three years. So it’s going to be a ‘let rip, bundle me out of the back door under a blanket’ one. Cant’t wait!

Here, just as a taster, is a photo of one of the themes of my talk…..
