TEN X Debate #4 Education for Vulnerable People

The third in the series of TEN_X leadership debates finds the panel discussing how schools and colleges work with vulnerable people. Just what constitutes a "vulnerable" person changes from institution to institution and the interventions - or deliberate non-intervention - is the subject of much discussion.

TEN Group was very pleased to be able to get Lisa Christensen, then Director of Children's Services for Norfolk County Council, to join the debate. 

This is a debate that needs to be solidly addressed on a national stage - it is good to see TEN Group catalysing the discussion within (and about) Norfolk.

The panel tonight consists of:

  • Chair: Dick Palmer, Group CEO of Transforming Education in Norfolk Group
  • Lisa Christensen, Director of Children's Services, Norfolk County Council
  • David Brunton, Principal of City Academy Norwich
  • Michael Rose, Headteacher of Wayland Academy Norfolk
  • Steffan Griffiths, Headteacher of the Norwich School
  • Corrienne Peasgood, Principal of City College Norwich
  • Jason Morrow, Headmaster of Norwich High School for Girls
  • Melvyn Roffe, Principal of Wymondham College

 

TEN_X Debate #2 Examination and Assessment

The second in the series of TEN_X leadership debates finds the panel discussing the state of examination and assessment of students. After several, high profile problems with the marking and assessment systems and a general debate over the veracity and usefulness of our national system of judging student's worth; this debate gives the views of several well regarded and experienced educators - and gives thought to our future direction of travel.

There is an interesting discussion around the differences between public and private education and their attitudes and practices; there is also an over-arching feeling that the system is not delivering wat it should do for individual students and for educational institutions.

This is a debate that needs to be solidly addressed on a national stage - it is good to see TEN Group catalysing the discussion within (and about) Norfolk.

As previously, the panel tonight consists of:

  • Chair: Dick Palmer, Group CEO of Transforming Education in Norfolk Group
  • David Brunton, Principal of City Academy Norwich
  • Steffan Griffiths, Headteacher of the Norwich School
  • Corrienne Peasgood, Principal of City College Norwich
  • Jason Morrow, Headmaster of Norwich High School for Girls
  • Melvyn Roffe, Principal of Wymondham College

The panel for the inaugural debate consists of:

  • Chair: Dick Palmer, Group CEO of Transforming Education in Norfolk Group
  • David Brunton, Principal of City Academy Norwich
  • Steffan Griffiths, Headteacher of the Norwich School
  • Corrienne Peasgood, Principal of City College Norwich
