SLTcamp - Igniting Change


SLTcamp - a ground-breaking residential unconference hitting UK for the first time this November. The event will bring together like-minded senior leaders to help one another become better senior leaders.

On the 15th of November 2013 Stephen Lockyer @MrLockyer and Sarah Findlater @MsFindlater will be hosting a super weekend residential of participant-driven and participant lead CPD, aimed specifically at SLT and aspiring SLT.  It will be an unconference to top all unconferences, and conferences for that matter! Senior leaders will be able to connect with like minded individuals, collaborate on ideas, listen to talks, take part in workshops, be part of group discussions and form solutions. There will be time to embed and discuss those workshops experienced, talks listened to, activities taken part in.
The focus of the weekend will be sharing the challenges and experiences of being a member of SLT and working together towards finding new and exciting ways forward.  We are in an era of ever-changing educational policy and external pressures, it is time to take control back.  We are the experts.  Together we can make a better SLT.  This weekend will form a national community of like minded senior leaders to help one another to be better leaders. We hope to ignite change and spark inspiration over the course of the weekend.  We will very much style the weekend around the participants specialisms and needs.  All sessions will be focused on encouraging change and furthering our ability to be the best senior leaders we can be.
Accommodation and food are provided at a ridiculously low price (£99 for 2 nights accommodation and all food) for attendees and fun is thrown in for free - bonus!  The event is a residential event and will take place over the course of the entire weekend.  We will be based at Holmbury St Marys YHA.  For detail about the location and how to get there please visit our website.  There will be no charges for any sessions held over the course of the weekend because we form both the audience and the leaders of sessions.  The only the best speakers for the best audience.
