TKAT ACE Conference 2022Posted on: 5th Dec 2022
TKAT ACE leads from across the Trust packed the Atkins Centre HQ for the first TKAT ACE Leads Conference earlier this month.
As #OneTKATfamily, we were able to celebrate our successes, reflect on our work in the context of the TKAT strategy, learn from experts about the power of research and evaluation and the brain science of poverty, deepen our understanding of the importance of self-efficacy and learn about how Ofsted observed the impact of TKAT ACE.
TKAT colleagues also took the opportunity to hold regional meetings where they shared our approaches and demonstrated the truth and value of the TKAT ACE approach of one compelling principle with manifold implementation.
The Conference included
Dr Karen Roberts, (TKAT CEO), David Linsell, (Director for TKAT ACE), Beth Williams, (School Partnerships), Ben Eason (Rainham School for Girls), Matt Roberts (Thomas Bennett Community College) and Sian Roberts (Newlands Primary School)
The guest keynote speaker was Sean Harris, Trust Improvement Lead at Tees Valley Education Trust, who spoke about 'The Brain Science of Poverty'
Feedback from TKAT colleagues at the conference was also positive:
"It really was an enlightening day and I have taken many things away that I can focus on with the team"
Thank you to all involved.
