Event information

Increasingly our schools and school systems feel driven by concerns around the likes of OFSTED inspections and league-tables. School leaders are increasingly forced to ask “what would OFSTED think?” rather than “what is the right thing to do?” when making decisions with their leadership teams.

No wonder we are in a motivational crisis today, with 40% of surveyed teachers recently saying they were considering leaving the profession.

Of course some level of “accountability” in our schools and the school system remains essential. But in this lively discussion, Sharath Jeevan FCCT – one of the world’s leading experts on intrinsic motivation – will share some ideas on how we can still manage these accountability pressures while re-igniting our work as teachers and school leaders.

Please join us for a thought-provoking, interactive session that will provide many practical ideas for how we can re-ignite the intrinsic motivation in ourselves and our schools.

In this online event, we will explore:

  • How we can remain “accountable” while reducing the “fear and compliance-based culture” that is causing our current motivation crisis
  • How we can manage accountability pressures while re-igniting our work as teachers and school leaders
  • Intrinsic Motivation and the pillars of Purpose, Autonomy and Mastery – for both ourselves in our own work as well as role-modelling these elements for the children we ultimately serve
