Key Note Speaker

We are delighted to welcome Nina Jackson, a highly creative educator and, whilst her first book explored her research on how music can improve learning and motivation in all classrooms, her latest best-selling book, Of Teaching, Learning and Sherbet Lemons: A Compendium of Careful Advice for Teachers, is helping put the ‘fizz’ back into classrooms for thousands of teachers.

For Nina, it’s all about the sherbet lemons. Classrooms need to have the ‘hard stuff’ in place - rigour, systems, expectations and a professionally inclusive approach to the achievement of all children. But there also needs to be the ‘fizz’ – the magic, the excitement, the emotional engagement, the sense of wonder, the passion for teaching and learning, that special energy that Nina personifies when you hear her speak


A full list of workshops will be released soon...

“The EEF is delighted to have been able to work with Partners in Learning and Doncaster schools on the ‘Making best use of Teaching Assistants’ project. The way the evidence has been brought ‘to life’ by bringing in expertise on school improvement, and drawing on local school examples, has been fantastic. Thank you to all the schools for the energy and commitment they have brought to the project. We look forward to working together on future collaborations".
Dr Jonathan Sharples EEF, November 2016
