Today, the Psychreg team is at the Academies Show 2018. Now in its eight year, it continues to bring together senior leadership teams from academies, maintained schools, and the wider education sector.
The Show has evolved from offering guidance on how to convert to an academy to providing school management support for all types of schools in the UK. The show is guided by its advisory board, which helps them keep their fingers on the pulse of the sector and know what matters to teachers. The board is made up of a wide range of specialisms and focuses and helps to shape their shows to fit the needs of all with a stake-holding in the education sector.
The one-day event is prestigious and involves influential, high-profile speakers in the education sector. It offers a flexible space for colleagues to meet, share and celebrate good practice through activities. At the heart of the Show, is the exhibition floor, where attendees are able to meet around 200 leading suppliers to the education sector, who were keen to demonstrate their latest products, services, and innovations. The exhibitors are there to help attendees save time and money in their organisations.
The event also introduced the revitalised Government Village, which is aimed as a drop-in centre where attendees can raise questions to experts from the Department for Education, the Education and Skills Funding Agency, and other agencies and services. With a renewed emphasis on effective use of schools resources, the stand will have a more robust focus on effective budget management, procurement, and effective buying that supports school improvement.
The Academies Show will be rebranded at Schools & Academies Show and will be taking place at Birmingham on 21 November 2018. The new website will be launched shortly.
