Opening keynote at Lincolnshire Heads’ conference

Michael Pain opened the Lincolnshire Primary Head teacher’s conference with a keynote on ‘the changing landscape for school leadership and education in 2014’.

The speech covered the major current challenges for education: closing the gap, variability, and a system that prepares pupils to succeed in a changing and more interdependent world. He covered the changes currently taking place in the English education system, particularly the growing autonomy of schools and the implications for leaders. He considered the characteristics of high-performing education systems and districts nationally and asked heads to consider how they could collaborate to ensure their local systems were amongst the very best in the world.
