More than 800 school professionals are expected to attend the two-day conference at Manchester Central on 5-6 December 2013.

The conference will make use of two of Manchester Central’s main areas, including its exchange hall, auditorium, a number of breakout rooms and two of its main foyer areas.

The conference will address some of education’s most pressing questions, including how to make the UK education system world class by recruiting, retaining and continually developing outstanding teachers, through all stages of their careers.

The conference will also present ideas, practice and evidence from SSAT’s Redesigning Schooling campaign for a schools-led vision of education. It will be led by Professor Andy Hargreaves and Professor Michael Fullan, alongside a range of expert speakers and aims to shape the future of schooling in the UK.

Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT, said: "We have been so impressed with Manchester Central’s commitment to developing its people and the local area. Our conference is all about helping teachers design and realise the ‘new professionalism’ they need to deliver a world-class education.

"Manchester Central’s approach is in absolute alignment with this vision – we believe they are setting the standard for the ‘new professionalism’ in UK conferencing."

Angie Robinson, chief executive of Manchester Central, said: "Manchester is a pioneer in so many educational fields, including the sciences and the arts, as well as being a hub for research and development. So what better place to help shape, inspire and encourage education improvement in our schools."
