)-- A One Day National Conference
Raising School Standards in Wales
Monday, 17th March 2014 – Cardiff
This National Raising School Standards in Wales Conference comes at a crucial time to prepare delegates for impending curriculum and qualification changes whilst implementing the Literacy and Numeracy Framework.
The programme tackles the Welsh Government’s key priorities for raising school standards in Wales; improving literacy and numeracy and closing the gap. Following the announcement of the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) ring-fenced funding of £19 million for school improvement at a regional consortia level, other fundamental areas of focus for the conference will be education support and collaborative working.
Now is the time for schools to come together as they enter their review phase with budgets in place; ready to gain inspiration and exchange ideas on the strategic planning needed to align current priorities with impending changes.
