School Leadership: Challenges & Opportunities

This event will have a number of keynote speakers who will help you engage in ways that you, as a Deputy Principal and school leader, view the challenges and opportunities within your role. Some of the key topics that will be discussed are diversity, inclusion, middle leadership and special educational needs.
