Wednesday 27th September 2017 9am – 3.30pm
Inspire would like to invite our members to join us from 9:00am on Wednesday 27th September 2017 to reflect on what it takes to break down the barriers and raise boys’ achievement and how this might have implications for your own school.
The session, sponsored by Oxford University Press, offers the opportunity for our members to attend a free full day of professional development:
Achievement - setting the context of boys’ underachievement
Breaking through the barriers to boys’ achievement in literacy
Effective strategies for breaking through other barriers to boys’ achievement
The day will be led by Gary Wilson. Gary is a freelance consultant who has been a teacher for 26 years in Huddersfield and has spent a great deal of his career specializing in raising boys’ achievement.
He is the author of several books on the subject and is used extensively by several LA s and organizations to implement his ideas on closing the gender gap. There have been 3 programmes made about his work for Teachers TV and he has appeared on the BBC and Woman’s Hour many times.
Booking: Schools can book up to 2 places; there is no charge to Inspire Members.
