IT was the teachers’ turn to learn and be inspired at an Oldham Aspirant School Leaders networking event at The White Hart.
The event brought together teachers, heads and educational specialists from secondary, primary and special schools across the borough.
Delegates spent time talking to one another about their jobs and roles, as well as listening to talks and signing up to be part of an Aspirant Leader data base.
The gathering heard from Rachael Swaby, who recently took the top post at Friezland Primary School, as well as Hardial Hayer, a head of 22 years at The Radclyffe School.
And they were updated on the work of the Oldham Education Partnership to implement the skills commission and ensure children and young people are school ready, work ready and life ready.
Matthew Milburn, headteacher at Saddleworth School, “We hope the event encourages people to work closely with each other to promote a greater sense of ambition and optimism and make leadership of learning in sustainable.
“There is so much to be gained from doing this job and inspiring a future generation.
“There are a lot of things going on to improve and develop education in the borough and Oldham is a great place to be.”
