Rethinking schools work?
SchoolsworkUK’s 2020 Day Conference, ‘Back to School’, is an opportunity at the start of the academic year to focus on the importance, the joys and the challenges of working with young people in school; a chance to reflect, pray, dream and learn with other practitioners. Together, this year we’ll explore how we could interact with students by digging into some of the theological principles that underpin Jesus’ approach to ministry, and then spend time rediscovering what the outworking of those values might be. It’s an opportunity to centre ourselves before we delve into another academic year, a day dedicated to resourcing you and helping the young people you work with in school to thrive.
Last September, at our previous day conference ‘Old Ground, New Rules’, we spent the day thinking about the current landscape in schools and the changes and opportunities this presents for our contexts. We dreamt about what renewed schools work could look like practically, as we heard from twelve different approaches. We would love to invite you to come on this adventure in 2020 as we grapple with Jesus’ ministerial model for schools work before we head ‘back to school’.

What people said about the 2019 conference:
- "Great chance to step back and think before the start of the year about the schools work we’re about to start and to challenge the way I was looking at."
- "There was a great variety of teaching… there were nuggets of gold in all the talks I heard."
- "Helped me to think about my work and context, inspires me to think big and press on, energises me by being with others who understand what I do and also want to do it better. Quality thoughts, debates and information that enable me to pass on the blessing to others in my team."
- The information that I received was very helpful, and has inspired our team. More people need to know how good the content was."
- "For a worker in schools it was challenging, inspiring and also encouraging that I am doing some good things already."
