Staff from IES Kista attended their first Regional Conference at IES Tyresö on Friday 16th October.
Regional Conference is annual event where IES schools in the local area have the opportunity to meet their colleagues. It provides an excellent opportunity to share best practice across the organisation and the chance to build contacts with other staff members.
IES Kista and Tyresö were joined by those from Nacka, Huddinge, Järfälla and Bromma as well as leaders from the organisation’s headquarters for the day, to discuss the theme of Entrepreneurship. The day included a guest lecture by Stefan Lindström as well as discussions between each individual department. Entrepreneurship is an important part of the Swedish school curriculum and schools should work to continually develop the problem-solving abilities of students to ensure that they are ready for the ever-changing 21st century working environment.
IES Kista would like to thank Tyresö for their organisation of the day which has led to many staff now returning to work inspired to further improve our learning experience.
