It has finally arrived, the much anticipated flagship event for Partners in Learning and the veritable Olympics for teaching and learning the ‘Global Forum’ will take centre stage this week and celebrate the world’s most innovative educators and school leaders.
This week 200 educators will compete for a chance to win one of 18 Global Forum Educator awards. Amongst these educators will be our very own Katie Boothman and Nicki Maddams. This track marks the culmination of national and regional competitions that have taken place throughout the year. Congratulations to Katie and Nicki on making it this far and good luck this week!
The Forum will also welcome representatives from 65 Pathfinder schools from more than 60 countries. Havant Academy and Willows High School were chosen through a global application process to represent the UK – it’s a big achievement and one that deserves celebrating! Leading innovators Saltash.net community school will represent one of the 34 Mentor Schools who are now helping guide this year’s class of Pathfinder Schools.
So what exactly will this week look like for our educators and schools?
Nicki and Katie will participate in the teachers track: “Your Ideas Matter”
