West Country Teaching School Alliance and Dartmoor Teaching School Alliance came together to host a Women Leading in Education South West conference on Wednesday evening. Organised by Sara Jacobs, the event was popular – even on a cold, dark night in January! Viv Grant opened the evening with a passionate keynote focused on the power of coaching. This was followed by Margaret Davis, Director of ‘The Glass Lift’, who shared real-life success stories and inspiring outcomes of coaching on individuals and businesses. Caroline Sherwood, the project director, outlined what is on offer in the South West, as well as the work already underway in the region. The closing keynote, by Mary Myatt, asked the audience to consider what soulful schools, heart-based education and courageous leadership should look like. All attendees have shown interest in being coached, or becoming a coach – or both! Regional hub leads will now lead a series of training days for coaches, so that they are well equipped to support women no matter the stage in their career. One attendee said of the event: “What a fantastic event... Inspirational talks, a great atmosphere and freebies. I am sure that the people who attended will have left inspired to improve themselves and others as well as reconnect with their moral purpose.”
