2020 Services 2 Schools Conference

We have now confirmed our 2020 conference!

Following feedback from our 2019 event, we have decided to continue to hold the conference at the East Sussex National in Uckfield on 30th January. We have found some really fantastic speakers for the event and worked very hard to bring new exhibitors for the second year running, so watch this space we will release more details soon!

2019 Annual Conference...31st January 2019

The day was a sell-out success with 130 delegates attending from maintained schools and academies across East Sussex to network, develop knowledge and explore the exhibition arena. Delegates were treated to an action packed programme of Keynote speakers and workshops themed around professional development. For the first time, the invite was extended to a selection of Brighton schools to understand whether the event could grow even further next year. 

It was a record-breaking year for selling exhibitor stands, with 54 Marketplace stands in the arena. 

We also ran three workshop sessions to give a real clear focus on CPD time for your staff. These topics were what delegates had asked for throughout the year, and all sessions were interactive, practical and focussed to really achieve a positive learning outcome and environment. We covered: 
• The Art of Negotiation
• Grant Maximisation
• Apprenticeships: recruitment, management and beyond.

The feedback for the event has been outstanding; 96% would recommend the day to colleagues and 99% will attend again next year. 
‘Sir John Jones was absolutely amazing! Great speaker! Workshops were very informative. Thank you’. 
‘Many thanks for all the hard work that goes into organising this major event - it is very much appreciated by Schools’.
‘One of the best conferences I have attended.  No improvements necessary!  Thank you again’.
