Early Years Leadership for a Post-Covid World
An Online Symposium
4.30-6pm (GMT), 10th November 2020
What kind of early years leadership do we need over the next few years?
What are the challenges we face and how can we overcome them?
How important is the early years sector and early years leadership in post-Covid social recovery?
As we move towards the end of an exceptionally challenging year for early years education, we would like to relaunch the Leadership in Early Years Education Research Interest Group (BELMAS) with an online event about the role of leadership in the recovery and outlook of the sector. Early years settings have a vital part to play in the post-Covid world, though their situation is more precarious than ever. Through brief presentations and open dialogue, the 90 minute symposium will explore the future of early years leadership, the challenges ahead and the road to recovery.
Three speakers will open the discussion with their thoughts:
- Professor Julie Nicholson, specialist in trauma-responsive early childhood education
- Julian Grenier, headteacher of Sheringham Nursery School, author and advisor
- Sharon Quamie, baby room leader at the London Early Years Foundation New Cross Nursery
