Five Ways to Flex


Detailing five practical areas of focus for improving or introducing flexible working in schools – 1) hearts and minds (culture) – 2) the jigsaw puzzle (timetable) – 3) conversations (line management) – 4) flexible thinking (ways to work flexibly) – 5) floodgates (recruitment, succession and HR management). This session will highlight how to overcome barriers to schools being more flexible which will include practical takeaways for leaders but also help support people looking to make their own case for flexible working requests.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
