This summer, The Education Network is the headline sponsor of the Youth Sport Trust Headteacher Ambassador Regional and National Conferences.

The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that was founded in 1994 and they are passionate about creating a brighter future for all children and young people through the power of sport.

The organisation’s Head Teacher Ambassadors make up a national network that influences and informs their strategy and future direction, as well as influencing national policy makers in education, sport and health.

It is because of our shared passion for education and promoting physical activity to inspire young people through PE and sport, that we’re proud to announce our sponsorship of this wonderful event, which sees the charity’s Head Teacher Ambassadors come together to network and work towards a brighter future for education.

It is also a perfect opportunity for them to hear from senior Youth Sport Trust staff, from key education, health and sport stakeholders and policy makers and, most importantly to meet with like-minded colleagues.

With children and young people experiencing declining emotional health and wellbeing, increasing obesity levels and high youth unemployment, the mission of the Youth Sport Trust has never been more important, especially for schools.

The charity has an outstanding 20 year track record of improving the lives of young people from 18 months to 18 years.

They work with all primary, secondary and special educational needs practitioners to create solutions that improve health, attendance, academic achievement and raise standards, providing all young people with skills for life.

The conferences will be held in various locations across the UK, including:

  • Bristol – 25/09/2017

  • London – 26/09/2017

  • Loughborough – 02/10/2017

  • Leeds – 03/10/2017

The Youth Sport Trust also offers a range of different events for member and non-member primary and secondary schools.
