Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership National ConferenceNew Chaplaincy Stream

CCE are delighted that the Foundation has included a new Chaplaincy Stream as part of its hugely popular National Conference, which is taking place at Methodist Central Hall in London on Thursday 6 February 2020.

Although there have been workshops about chaplaincy, the programme includes a full stream of sessions including input from Mike Haslam, Charlie Kerr, Maggie Everett and Garry Neave. This is suitable for chaplains and clergy working in partnership with schools, colleges and universities and should be a great day. The keynotes for the conference as a whole, which is focusing on ‘Visionary Curriculum Leadership’  are being delivered by Justin Welby, Paula Gooder and Mary Myatt – so it should be a great day!
