By Vivienne Porritt @ViviennePorritt Our 5th Unconference this Saturday, 5th October is going to be special. We’re keeping our tradition of all of us meeting together at the beginning and end of the day and celebrating what our #community has achieved since last year. We do have some new elements to build our engagement across the community so look out for those. We will also share some exciting things we are doing to improve #communication.

by Emma Grundy @MsGundry I am at the end of week 3 of my first headship and it is both better and worse than I’d imagined.

By Anonymous Going into teaching in my 30s, after seven years in Marketing and Sales wasn’t easy, but it has been fulfilling and has made me think very differently about what counts for experience and skill in the workplace.
When you have to walk away

By Anonymous Values are things that we generally take for granted.  We have our own moral compass and assume that others have the same.  Until something happens that makes us question either our own values or someone else’s.
New role, New school, New normal

By Anonymous   Biggest challenge? Going from a school knowing more or less everyone’s name, including most students (having been there forever) to feeling rude every other time you talk to someone. I feel like walking around with a badge saying, “Hi, I’m Mrs Taylor and you are? *sorryififorgot”

Rambling, rantings and confessions of a new education freelancer

By Anonymous ‘It’s a big world outside the classroom,’ said a wise friend about six months ago. And, just like that (well, almost), I resigned and jumped off the cliff after around a quarter of a century in schools. I’ve documented quite openly the joys and the freedom and the opportunities to be able to shout about louder about the issues really affecting teachers – ridiculous levels of scrutiny, presenteeism, data over humans etc. Here, I am taking an opportunity to voice – anonymously, for obvious reasons – some of the more surprising, less paletable, more controversial and more personal stuff that’s been playing on my mind in its new and disconcerting freedom to actually think independent thoughts.
10%Braver - A review

By Lucy Did you know that 62% of secondary teachers are women — but only 39% of secondary headteachers are female? Or that only 7% of women in education attempt to negotiate their initial salary offer, compared to over half of their male counterparts? Before reading ‘10%Braver’, I certainly didn’t. It is no wonder that the #WomenEd movement has been growing at such a rapid pace: this book is the much-needed next step to implement change and I wholeheartedly recommend this book to every educator, everywhere.

It was a normal day at the office. A busy day. I came across Ambition School Leadership (@Ambition_Inst) and a Headship course. I first thought – me? Headship? No. Not a chance… but I was 10%braver, without even knowing it.
