DPmeet: Evolving the Role of the Deputy Principal


We’re glad to announce our next Teachmeet will be taking place at the IPPN Deputy Principals’ Conference 2016 – and is aimed specifically at Deputy Principals.

Our DPmeet will be an opportunity for inspirational Deputy Principals to meet and share good practice, practical ideas and personal insights into primary education and leadership! Our DPmeet follows our conference theme ‘Evolving the Role of the Deputy Principal’ – and you’re invited to share your inspirational strategies that you use to lead teaching and learning in your own school.

A DPmeet is based on the philosophy of a Teachmeet which is an organised (but informal) meeting where participants are offered a variety of nano (2-minute) or macro (7-minute) presentations on any aspect of education – in this case, primary education and leadership. Participants can be actively involved as presenters, or can simply relax and listen to all that will be on offer. Attending this meet will also illustrate how you yourself can host a Teachmeet in your own school or your own locality.

So can you share some tantalising tips, sizzling strategies or innovative ideas with us? Or are you looking to be enthused, excited and energised by similar minded educators?

If so, come join us on Friday 20th May!

Attendance is limited to delegates at the IPPN Conference – if you’re attending, click here to download an application form to present at our event.
