About this Conference

Our conference theme Exploration and Insights is intended to offer delegates an invaluable opportunity to explore new ideas in a lakeside setting designed to maximise face-to-face learning and sharing. As an organisation we are responding to the financial challenges faced by many schools by restructuring our conference packages. Delegates are able to select from a competitively-priced range of cost-effective options - from half days and single days to the full conference experience - we are particularly excited to offer our innovative "middle day" option offering a full day of classroom-focused workshops, with optional evening BBQ and quiz which we hope will prove very attractive for our teaching members. Delegates, and their partners, should note that the venue also offers a superb range of leisure facilities and a relaxing spa which are all available at an additional charge.

This is a co-badged conference with NANAMIC.
