SAFEGUARDING YOUNG PEOPLE by Nigel Heritage

Friday 15 March, Manchester

In England a child is defined as anyone under 18. Therefore, if your organisation runs courses for students under 18, including 16 and 17 year old students on adult courses, you need to ensure you are following legislation and inspection scheme requirements on issues concerning the safeguarding of young people. Come and join a day that explains what those issues are and give practical ideas to make sure your organisation is getting it right.

MANAGING DIFFICULT PEOPLE by Helen Chambers

Friday 15 March, London

Whether you lead a team or a team member, managing, leading or dealing with difficult people is unfortunately a common necessity.

MAKING DIGITAL WORK FOR YOU by Sarah Milligan

Friday 15 March (pm only), London

Blend me, shape me, anyway you teach me… We love it when a lesson plan comes together and using digital resources can be a key part of that success. Don't bend your lesson plans to fit into digital, make digital work for you to create your best lessons yet. In this workshop you will be given examples of how you can implement online resources to make interesting, motivating lessons. Whether you're a technophobe, digital enthusiast or merely computer curious, come along and see what tips you can pick up!

POST-HEROIC LEADERSHIP FOR COMPLEX TIMES by Adrian Underhill

Wednesday 20 March, London

There are two key focuses of the day: 1) the ability to 'see complexity', to stop confusing 'messes' with 'difficulties' and to recognise and treat them differently, with quite different thinking and strategies. 2) to attract people's deep commitment by developing the connectivity and coherence between people and across the organisation that emerges as organisational and individual aspirations start to coincide, and as people find that they are working for what they hold to be deeply important. The day will be active and experiential, with a focus on skills to develop in school.

INTEGRATING TECHNOLOGY INTO THE CLASSROOM by Gavin Dudeney

Thursday 21 March, London

Whilst most teachers have a good idea of how technologies fit into their own private and professional lives, few still have the skills and experience to translate this knowledge into classroom practice. In this workshop we will consider where new technologies fit into language teaching and experiment with a variety of tools and applications that make such integration both easy and useful.

INTEGRATING MOBILE LEARNING by Gavin Dudeney

Friday 22 March, London

Many people in many contexts now live surrounded by mobile gadgets which form part of their daily lives, from mp3 players to smart phones, video cameras to tablet computers. In this session we look at how these gadgets can play a useful part in our students' learning, both in and outside the classroom.
