The CEO of Sutton Coldfield-based Arthur Terry Learning Partnership is to chair a major conference which brings together school leaders from across the region.
#WMschooled takes place on Friday 18 May and will be chaired by Richard Gill.
It is organised by the Teaching Schools Council (TSC) and BBC Midlands Today presenter Mary Rhodes is hosting the event.
Launched in 2015, and now the most anticipated West Midlands school leaders event of the year, #WMschoolled will attract the cream of senior educational leaders and decision makers, all keen to tackle the burning issues surrounding the school leadership system.
Last year was all about empowering delegates to get involved and shape the evolving educational landscape.
This year will focus on change and how senior school staff will find real solutions to make positive differences in the classroom environment.
The Keynote Speeches will be delivered by Geoff Barton, General Secretary for the Association of School & College Leaders (ASCL), Professor Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive, Chartered College of Teaching and Sir Christopher Stone, Chief Education Officer, MENASA and Deputy Chairman, Academic Council.
Richard, who is the West Midlands Representative of the TSC, said: “In 20 years’ time school leaders are going to look back at the legacy we have left behind.
“A school led system, which seeks to see every child attending a good or outstanding school, is giving us the opportunity to create inspirational futures for all of our young people whilst empowering the system to do what is right.
“Our comprehensive Leadership Learning Event will empower senior staff to take their school to the next level”.
The conference will be held at The Chateau Impney Hotel & Exhibition Centre in Worcestershire and is sponsored Babcock Prime & Design 3i. Other sponsorship packages are available.
