What's in it for me?
Back by popular demand, the next series of the Innovate My School LIVE roadshow focuses on how schools today are doing more with less, and how they can continue to innovate in spite of squeezed budgets.
Hosted at the forward-thinking Shireland Collegiate Academy, the 7th July will bring together senior leaders from across the West Midlands to share best practice, develop new ideas and make meaningful partnerships.
We will be encouraging attendees to share their stories at the event and filming on-the-spot Innovation Burst videos, which will be later shared with our online community. Lurkers are also welcome, as there will be lots of ideas to take away and glean from this event.
There will also be two opportunities to speed date during the day. Ten innovative companies handpicked by us have been given the brief of supporting schools to do more with less.
Who should go?
Any senior leader in the region who wants to learn from peers and forward thinking companies, about tried and tested practices and products that will help them innovate their budget.
- Business Managers
- Deputy Headteachers
- Assistant Headteachers
- Subject Leaders
- Curriculum / Phase Coordinators
Speed dating, what’s that all about?
As pioneers of speed dating in the education sector, with over 150 events under our belt, we have proven speed dating to be a fast-moving, fun, effective format for meeting a range of innovative products in a short space of time. For more information, visit our speed date page.
How much does it cost to attend?
This event is free of charge for up to two delegates per school and includes breakfast, refreshments and an executive lunch. Tickets will go fast, so book yours in advance!
Who are the suppliers?
This is a surprise! Each of the 10 non-competing suppliers have been selected based on the brief of supporting schools to innovate their budget. This could be through solutions that create cost savings, help to open up other revenue streams or are proven to support student outcomes.
What the host school says...
"We are so pleased and very excited to be hosting an Innovate My School Live Roadshow event on Friday 7th July at Shireland. In a world where budgets are shrinking and it being increasingly difficult for senior leaders to be able to get out of school and see what is new and innovative in educational technology and have opportunities to have professional discussions around what works and hear how other schools do things, Innovate My School bridges this gap and allows companies to come to local schools in one focused session rather than schools spending vast amounts of time searching online for new products that are going to make a difference.
"They have done the hard work and sourced the very best that are worth taking a look at.".
- Kirsty Tonks, Principal Designate of Shireland Technology Primary
