Free BELMAS conference - Who should own our schools?


The British Educational Leadership, Management and Administration Society (BELMAS) is holding a conference entitled ‘Who should own our schools?’ The government’s vision for a system of publicly-funded independent schools raises fundamental issues about governance and accountability. This major one-day conference will address these issues through a combination of authoritative and stimulating keynote inputs and the opportunity to discuss practice from a number of perspectives. 

The keynote speakers will be Melissa Benn, author of School Wars: The Battle for Britain’s Education (Verso, 2011), and Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Arts. Emma Knights, NGA’s Chief executive will also be speaking.

The conference will be on Wednesday 19 June 2013, 11.00-16.30 and will be at Royal National Hotel, London.
