Tickets are selling fast for the eagerly anticipated ‘Making an Impact’ conference, hosted by Derbyshire EPS on March 12th 2018.
We are very proud of our strong reputation for providing high quality, well evaluated training and the conference will be no exception.
Through a series of engaging workshops, school staff will be inspired to think critically about what evidence to look for when considering the effectiveness of interventions. Our keynote speech will be led by David Didau (Teacher/Author/Consultant) – renowned for his passionate work on realigning teaching with how children actually learn.
The closing date for bookings is February 2nd but based on previous conference sales it is likely that all spaces will be allocated before that. Should you wish to guarantee your seat, we would encourage you to book now by clicking here.

We hope to see you there!
Derbyshire Services for Schools 2017 Survey Results
During the Spring we asked schools and academies across the county to contribute to our annual survey, letting us know their opinions of the Derbyshire Services for Schools programme overall and individual service providers.
During the summer, we analysed the results of the survey in detail, to gain an accurate picture of what we're doing well and what needs to be improved. Attached are some key results from the survey.
Thanks to every school and academy who took part in the survey this year, your feedback has been vitally important!
