A day conference for educational professionals and academics on educational leadership. Thinking out of the box about leadership.


This event creates a space for leadership stories to be told and leadership issues to be raised, linked to accounts of different methodological approaches used to examine such accounts. Presenters have been invited to offer testimony yet to be researched as well as accounts of current research.

This will be a linked event with an early careers researcher innovative session included in the BERA Leeds 2016 conference. Both events are being planned to feed papers into a special issue, early 2017, of the BELMAS journal Management in Education.
