Oxford Teachers Early Career Development Conference 2017

We have now extended bookings for the Early Career Development Conference 2017 – to be held at St Anne’s College on Saturday 24th June 2017 – to all alumni and secondary school teachers within their first three years of teaching.

If you completed your PGCE course in 2014, 2015 or 2016 you can register via our online store.

The conference is now open to all secondary school teachers in Oxfordshire schools and all Department of Education PGCE alumni, wherever they may be, within their first three years of teaching. NQTs who were unable to attend last year’s conference (and even those who did) are also welcome to come along.


The conference, from 9am – 4.30pm, will be opened by the Director of the Department of Education and Fellow of St Anne’s College, Professor Jo-Anne Baird and the keynote speaker will be Dr Victoria Elliott who will talk about her research project for the Education Endowment Foundation on assessment and marking in schools. You can access the EEF review here and follow Velda on twitter @veldaelliott 

Workshops will include

  • Values-based education
  • Unconscious bias: gender and your classroom
  • Mindfulness in secondary schools
  • The Prevent agenda
  • Student voice in formative assessment
  • Behaviour in schools
  • The MLT Poster Conference

A plenary session will draw together the themes of the conference and also provide delegates with an opportunity to ask questions of a panel of teachers at various levels of their careers on how they developed their career trajectory, whether planned or unplanned.
