Be Inspired

“Days like this are really important because they allow trainee teachers to come together, get to know each other and learn about different practices.

“Crucially, this type of event also allows them to form support networks, so that over the years they can flourish and be the best teachers they can be.”

Student summit hailed a huge success

Hundreds of Bradford’s trainee teachers converged in the city centre last week for an event designed to inspire them to pursue their future career in local schools.

The first ever Bradford Opportunities Conference – a day long learning and networking event designed to provide every student undertaking initial teacher training (ITT) in the city with a chance to see the best of what Bradford’s schools have to offer – took place at the prestigious Midland Hotel on Friday 22nd November.

As well as hearing from academic experts and school leaders, the students were encouraged to visit exhibition stands and took part in sessions to learn about the history of the city, see the latest the latest thinking around evidence-based teaching and discover ways of maintaining a good work-life balance throughout their careers.

Anne-Marie Canning, Director of Social Mobility and Student Success at Kings College, London, and a keynote speaker at the event said: “Days like this are really important because they allow trainee teachers to come together, get to know each other and learn about different practices.

“Crucially, this type of event also allows them to form support networks, so that over the years they can flourish and be the best teachers they can be.”

The Bradford Opportunities Conference was preceded on the evening of 21st November by a drinks reception at the city’s National Science and Media Museum, where the students took part in workshops and demonstrations of the museum’s cutting-edge exhibits before sitting down to a special free screening of Apollo 11: First Steps Edition in IMAX.
