Share your school’s commitment to deep social justice at this year’s SSAT National Conference.
Applications are now open for SSAT member schools to share their stories by applying to host a workshop at the conference. Throughout 2019, we are working with schools and other educational organisations to make the case for deep social justice: a commitment to ensuring that all students leave school fully prepared to lead purposeful lives.
To help us achieve balance as we head into the 2020s, we are asking you – our members – to focus your workshop on one of the four ‘deeps’, which include:
Workshop duration: 45 minutes
Member schools that are successful in their application are able to present on their own (lead presenter), with a co-presenter or with two students.
The lead presenter will be invited to attend one day of the conference at no cost and co-presenters are welcome to attend at a discounted rate. Please note, SSAT are unable to provide funding for speaker travel.
To apply to host a workshop, please complete the application form.
Applications close on Friday 26 July 2019. All workshop applications will be considered by the conference panel. The lead presenter will be notified of the outcome by Monday 16 September 2019.
Applications will be opening in early September 2019. If you would like to put forward a group of students or an individual student to contribute to the National Conference, please let your Relationship Manager know, and they will let you know when applications open. Examples of how students have been involved in previous years are below.
Student reporters will be allocated workshops and mainstage presentations to attend and report on during either day 1 or day 2 of the conference, which will include interviewing presenters and delegates.
Students will run a stall within the exhibition hall of the conference to sell self-made products to delegates.
Some suggestions for products students can sell include calendars, tea towels, Christmas cards. All student enterprise applications require photos and details of products intended to be sold at the conference.
Student performances will be showcased to delegates on the mainstage and / or in the exhibition hall. Performance includes (but is not limited to) dance, song, instrumental or spoken word. Performances should be 5 minutes or less. All applications for student performances require a video and details of the proposed performance.
A contribution of up to £100 per school for travel is available in agreement with the conference organisers. Unfortunately, accommodation cannot be covered by SSAT.
