Raising Achievement Conference
Mount Carmel organised a ‘Raising Achievement’ conference at the school during an INSET training day at the end of the February half term break. The conference was led by Steve Head, one of the most sought after speakers in the UK. Steve is an inspirational trainer, coach and author with many years experience in business management, leadership and training and over 20 years’ experience as a top sports coach. Steve’s dynamic and interactive session focused on practical ideas to help students and teachers make a difference, no matter how small, develop self-awareness about where they are and where they need to be and also to identify practical strategies to build resilience. He is known by his clients as a dynamic speaker with practical ideas that simply work. Steve is also coach to the England Wheelchair Rugby League Squad. The conference was interactive, light hearted and was a great opportunity for Year 11 pupils and their teachers to learn together how small changes in approach and attitude can bring about great changes in outcomes, both in the upcoming exams and in life.
