ESHA Digital Café

cup of coffee and people

At the 24th of May the first ESHA digital café was launched. The topic was:  What do the Inspections mean for you as a headteacher and for the quality of your school?

After the introduction on the topic by school head Dave Woods (NAHT), the heads from 5 countries exchanged information and experiences. They shared their personal feelings and talked about the impact of inspections taking place in the schools. The responsibility of the school head was a common aspect. Significant differences were mentioned from how in the UK a school head actually committed suicide related to a top-down inspection, through inspectors who are critical friends, to quality controllers who, on behalf of the educational authority gave a broader insight into what inspections can mean. At the end all participants agreed that the digital café is a fine way to meet and talk with colleagues from all over Europe about topics that matter. They will certainly attend next time!

The next café will be on the 30th of June at 9.30 CET. The topic will be: How must education change to use the impact of Artificial Intelligence to our benefit?

During the next school year of 2023/2024 there will be 7 digital cafés (September, November 2023, January, March, and May 2024).
