    Hello everyone!

    I am hoping to find some ideas for things I can do over the UK summer break to add to leadership experience/working in international or independent schools.
    I have been researching conferences, events, workshops, job or volunteering opportunities.

    Is anyone aware of great educator events in this time? I'm open to all kinds of ideas!

    I am happy with any location! Just looking for great opportunities.

    Thank you!

    Good question tbennie.

    I'm wondering whether doing a course for data protection officer because of the new rules introduced under GDPR for schools, would benefit my position or open opportunities for me within schools. May be a dumb idea?

    There is a website called FutureLearn you have to pay but at the end of completing the online course you get a pretty certificate.they have so many different short topics you could complete

    I haven’t completed one yet but am planning to as I have just finished my pgce year and am looking to keep my knowledge fresh so I don’t find that I’ve forgotten important things when I start working

    I like your spirit. I think you should check newspaper and ask your friends about such opportunities in your home town. More over you can also increase your knowledge in certain subject by listening YouTube tutorials or by studying different topics deeply from authentic sites like Wikipedia and Qanda.
