Striving for equity: the 2022 Herts for Learning annual disadvantaged conference
This year’s conference, from the Herts for Learning Disadvantaged and Vulnerable team, will look at how schools can recognise and address the needs of disadvantaged pupils, with a particular focus on how to promote equity within schools.
As always, the conference will focus on raising the profile of those pupils who need us most across all phases of education and will equip delegates with strategies to ensure that these pupils can attain and progress as well as their peers.
The half-day online conference will comprise a number of keynotes, the first of which will be delivered by Sameena Choudry, Founder of Equitable Education and Senior Standards and Effectiveness Officer entitled:
“Equitable Education: What everyone working in education should know about closing the attainment gap for all pupils”
In addition, there will also be a focus on the importance of vocabulary development to support pupils to develop fluency in their speech, language and communication skills. This priority focus enables pupils to overcome barriers to learning and ensure engagement with the widest breadth of learning opportunities at all phases of education and beyond.
There will be a series of pre-recorded on-demand seminars available for all delegates, and their school colleagues, to access before and after the event, covering a range of relevant areas of interest to all phases of education.
Live sessions will be also be recorded and made available afterwards should delegates book but are then unable to attend on the day or part of the day.
As in previous years, the standard cost for this conference is £79 per school.
