Senior Leaders’ Think-Piece Webinar 5: Let’s Talk About Flex: Flexible Working in Schools

Led by Emma Turner

With workload and burnout being at an all time high across education, school leaders are looking for ever more creative and flexible working arrangements to support staff recruitment and retention.

Whether you’re a school leader who wants to know how to implement flexible working in your school, or whether you just want to know more about the concept, this session is for you!

Join us to hear from the inspiring Emma Turner who, having been able to work flexibly for 14 of her 25+ years in education – across teaching, school leadership and MAT leadership roles – will share her experiences and de-mystify some of the barriers to implementing a flexible working system within and across schools.
