The Education Authority (EA), in partnership with Osiris Educational, today hosted its first Educational Leadership Conference attended by over 600 school leaders from across Northern Ireland.

The conference highlights EA’s commitment to strengthening the current support and professional learning for school leaders which aligns to EA’s work in taking forward the Department of Education’s ‘Learning Leaders’ Strategy which has a strategic focus on Teacher Professional Learning.

EA’s inaugural conference offered access to a world-renowned leader in research-based educational improvement Professor John Hattie, whose work has already been implemented by school leaders across Northern Ireland.

Professor Hattie addressed the conference providing a journey through the most up-to-date, visible learning research.

This challenged school leaders to consider their approaches and interventions which are likely to have a positive impact on learning outcomes for children and young people in schools.
