Leadership for Learning

A vibrant network dedicated to leadership, learning and their inter-connection.

Leadership. Learning. Two ideas at the heart of education. Both are complex, open to widely differing interpretations and the subject of continuing debate among academics, policymakers and practitioners. The LfL network is concerned with both concepts and particularly with their connection, seeking to understand and share knowledge about leadership in education that supports learning.

Supper Seminar

Hospital Wood Library - three projects with children in different places from Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination

Garden painting by Eliza aged 8Our supper seminar this term reflects on what happens when children are invited to be experts in familiar spaces and explore with others some big questions  - how can we lead more active futures? what can happen outside the classroom? how can a library garden be a friendly space for others? This supper seminar will explore the challenge of co-creation with children and what that looks like in practice for everyone involved; children, teachers, other educators, families, other artists and experts. Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination artists Sally Todd and Deb Wilenski will share insights from recent work with Addenbrooke's Hospital, Spinney Wild Woods and Rock Road Library. Colleagues from the projects will also join our discussion.
