A wide shot of the crowd at the Teacher development conference

Teacher Development Conference 2018

Teacher Development Conference 2018

Inspirational speakers, practical learning and networking at this unique two-day CPD event with over 70 sessions designed specifically for teachers at the early stages of their career.

  • Attend practical CPD sessions designed to develop classroom practice; leadership capabilities; communication and influence; management of self and others
  • Take advantage of our exhibition, which will offer access to over 30 organisations dedicated to providing tools and resources to support early career teachers and their pupils both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Hear from researchED about the latest evidence-based research and understand how to put it into practice in school

Designed for early career teachers

For Early Years, Primary and Secondary teachers across all subjects and specialties who want to access the highest quality CPD. The one thing all delegates will have in common is that they are in the early stages of their career. This event will provide the opportunity to hear inspirational stories and motivational theory – but most importantly will ensure that delegates leave with an understanding of how to apply and embed this into everyday teaching practice.

Leeds 23 - 24 July

The conference runs from 09:00 Monday until 15:45 Tuesday. 

The event will take place at the First Direct Arena, the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett Universities. Maps and instructions will be provided at registration. Registration will take place at the First Direct Arena, and you should make your way there on Monday 23 July. Full joining instructions, including how to register, will be sent two weeks prior to the event.
