10 Jul 2023

Workshop Date: 10th July 2023

Systemic practitioners have a great deal to offer the world of schools and education.  This is an opportunity to share practice and develop relationships with others with a passion for this crucial area.

This Community of Practice session will build on previous meetings held in 2021 and 2022. It will provide an opportunity to share practice, news on policy developments, build relationships and networks; and consider how the systemic community can promote systemic ideas and values to influence future school and educational policy and practice.
