Trust Annual Conference
Our annual conference, held each year in February, brings together teachers from across the Trust for a day of high-quality training. Each day begins with an address from the Chief Executive, followed by workshops run by our own staff and trusted external facilitators.
At last year’s conference, held at Wilmington Academy, the Trust welcomed former Secretary of State for Education, Estelle Morris, and Para Olympian Steve Brown, to meet with staff and share their experience.
The event was part of the extensive career development programme available to all staff each year. Through a wide range of workshops and activities teachers, support staff and governors shared the excellent practice, taking place across each of the academies. Central to the conference was an awards ceremony celebrating the professional qualifications achieved by many during the year.
The Trust CEO, Simon Beamish, said:
“This year we brought together all 1,000 of our staff from across our academies. The atmosphere was electric as staff enjoyed high quality networking and training opportunities to ensure the best outcomes for our children and their families. We are already looking forward to next year’s event”.
