Nursery World Conferences

The 7th Nursery World Business Summit: a changed landscape

Online Conference: 4 & 5 March 2021

The past year has been like no other for the early years sector, as the Covid-19 pandemic brought lockdowns, restrictions and multiple operating challenges in terms of safety, staffing, occupancy and sustainability. Funding shortages have been brought into even sharper relief, with forecasts of closures, but there have also been opportunities for growth and new ways of doing things that will endure. In a wider context, coronavirus has savaged the economy, but Brexit has staggered on. How do nursery businesses respond to such seismic change?

Our essential conference has moved online, taking place on the afternoon of 4 March and the morning of 5 March. An expert line-up of speakers from government, Ofsted, nursery businesses and sector organisations will tackle the big issues, dispense advice and prompt debate.

Children and Young People's Mental Health Summit 2021

Online conference: 1st March 2021, 2.30-6.00 & 2nd March 2021, 9.30-1.00

The pandemic has brought uncertainty and disruption to all aspects of children's lives, with its impact on child and adolescent mental health a critical national concern.

The conference will take place online on the afternoon of Monday 1st March and the morning of Tuesday 2nd March 2021. We are bringing together leading mental health experts to equip you with the understanding, skills and confidence to support good mental health and wellbeing for all children and young people during these difficult times, and for all times.


Drama & Theatre Conferences

School Productions: From Page to Stage

Online Conference: 8 - 11 March 2021, 5pm to 7pm daily

School productions are a highlight of the year for all the students who take part, and for the parents who come proudly to see the results of their work. For teachers, they are mostly a joy, but they can also be fraught with complication – and never more so than in a global pandemic.

This online conference offers expert advice on everything from choosing and licensing appropriate shows to rehearsal scheduling in a busy school timetable.

Sessions include how to involve students in backstage roles, making your show look and sound professional on a tight budget and Covid-safe production ideas for socially distanced performances.

The event will provide essential insight and guidance to any teacher involved in mounting a school show.


SecEd & Headteacher Update Conferences

Edtech, Remote Learning & Pedagogy

Online Conference: 15 - 18 March 2021, 4pm to 6pm daily

The conference will consider how schools can ensure technology-use is integrated effectively and consistently across and between classrooms, and that teaching and learning approaches are coherent and effectively evaluated. It is also important to consider how new edtech can be integrated into your digital strategy past the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes technology-use for workload reduction, safeguarding, financial economies of scale, and broader governance issues (schools and education trusts), and will hear from those who have successfully delivered their own strategic change.

Registration will give you access to the four-day live stream as well as recordings of the presentations that you can view on-demand for three months after the conference.
