CODE>MAKE>WIN!

CODE>MAKE>WIN is a brilliant opportunity for young people interested in digital making to meet others doing the same thing around the city, and to showcase their ideas to professionals in the sector.

TAKE A LOOK AT PANJANGO: CONNECTING LEARNING TO LIFE!

It has never been more important to help young people develop the essential skills, knowledge and experience to fulfil their potential and thrive in the world of work. I met Joe Leech, an old colleague, last week at Get Up to Speed at Magna. Joe is Director of 'big green fox' a pioneering company, unique in their commitment to careers education starting in primary schools, and is supporting educators in delivering a competency, not just content, based education which helps young people better understand why they are attending school.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF!

"It always seems impossible until it is done."
Nelson Mandela

CHALLENGE YOURSELF!

We need to constantly think about what works and reflect on the impact and outcomes we are achieving to develop, improve and refine what we are doing.

GRIT = Guts, Resilience, Industriousness and Tenacity!

When the going gets tough, we must simply...
 stay focused, stay determined, stay optimistic, roll our sleeves up and work even harder!

LEADERSHIP, SYSTEMS AND ACCOUNTABILITY MATTER!

I am confused that people keep telling us that schools in England are performing so poorly when compared to the best in Europe let alone the best in the world.
