SPEED LEARNING - MANCHESTER - Thursday November 21st

If you haven't attended a Teachmeet or Speed learning event, you are really missing out! These free CPD events can be incredibly inspiring and will have you buzzing with new ideas to try in the classroom. After attending a speed learning event at St Silas last year, our school Davyhulme Primary, has decided to host a Manchester event on Thursday 21st November from 4pm - 5.45pm.

What is Speed Learning?
Knowing how precious everyone’s time is, Speed Learning aims to provide an intensive but fun learning opportunity after school. You will leave each event having picked up a series of top tips and short term strategies to support learning as well as one or two longer term ideas and thoughts.
When you arrive you will be warmly greeted by teachers, teaching assistants, heads and leaders – all of whom are part of the Primary Network – the largest school-led national network of primary practitioners.
Running from 16.00 – 17.45, you can have a well-earned cup of tea and a few biscuits whilst you hear a 15-minute keynote on the latest educational developments from one of the school leaders. Then, choose five tables to visit that reflect your highest priorities. Move around the carousels, ‘speed-dating’ style, to hear three minute nano-presentations at each table followed by discussion with like-minded colleagues on practical, relevant classroom topics.
Each Speed Learning event is different, with different people hosting tables. So far for the event in Manchester we have the following people hosting a table: 
Mr Parkinson Mr Parkinson - will be leading the keynote looking at building an audience for your children's work.
