Changing our schools from the inside out; Is this what we mean by Collaborative Professionalism?


During this event we will share examples of schools working differently with, and for, their staff. Our first case studies will be provided by our Carey Philpott Research Partners, ImpactED working with Bright Futures Educational Trust, and Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust. Each provides a unique evidence-based case study. After an opportunity for networking and refreshments further examples will be shared through table discussions. Contributors will tell their own stories of change and participants will have opportunities to reflect on what practices are emerging that support the building of Collaborative Professionalism. Professor Rachel Lofthouse will chair and facilitate the event, drawing on the work of Andy Hargreaves and Michael O’Connor, whose international research provides a persuasive argument for change.
