Bonus BPN webinar! Deborah Eyre speaks on High Performance Learning

Following the success of our recent head-led webinar series we are planning a new run of ten head-led webinars monthly between September 2017 and June 2018.

However, before the new series begins, we are delighted to have a bonus leadership webinar with Professor Deborah Eyre. Deborah is well known in the world of education and she has agreed to lead a BPN webinar on Thursday 14 September at 7pm (BST).

Deborah is a global educational leader, academic researcher, writer and influencer. Her specialist area is advanced cognitive performance - how to move school academic standards from good to great and at the same time provide an engaging experience for the student and prepare them for effective post school careers.

Deborah has held a variety of senior executive roles both globally and in the UK, as well as advising governments and educational foundations in the UK, Hong Kong, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, USA and Singapore. From 2010-2014 she was Education Director for Nord Anglia Education and prior to that she served as Director of the UK government’s innovative National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth (NAGTY), based at the University of Warwick.

She is a Freeman of the Guild of Educators and has served on a number of national and international boards including the UK TDA (Training and Development Agency for teachers), NCSL (National College for School Leadership), WCGTC (World Council for Gifted and Talented Children), Council for British International Schools (COBIS) and Centre for Talented Youth Ireland (CTYI). Her published works include Able Children in Ordinary Schools (1997), Room at the Top (Policy Exchange, 2010) and High Performance Learning: How to become a world class school (2016).

Deborah will be speaking on High Performance Learning:

“There’s a gap between success as defined by school systems and what society, the workplace and the individual seem to require. 

“Eighty two percent of UK schools are now classed as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’, yet there is evidence that schools are not producing children with the right skills to be college ready, work ready and life ready.

“A new approach is required so that schools can make additional improvements and ‘unleash greatness’. And ambitious schools across the world are looking to increase their performance, look beyond their own geography and become world beating.”

High Performance Learning is an advanced pedagogy that helps schools become world class through systematically developing superior cognitive performance in all students. Its proven framework and methodology, when applied by good schools, leads to increasingly strong academic results, well-motivated, engaged and life-ready students, and happier parents.

Register for the webinar on 14 September.
