Keynote speakers include Simon Weston and Rory Bremner, patrons of the ADHD Foundation. Rory Bremner was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult in 2011 after seeing similarities when his young nephew was diagnosed, and he became a Patron of the ADHD Foundation in 2013.
Jo Cross and Louise Daley, who will attend on behalf of Liverpool Hope, will be on hand to listen to schools’ training needs and offer advice on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Professional Masters Opportunities At Liverpool Hope, and School Partnership including School Direct.
Eileen Heron, Senior Professional Tutor for Partnership at Liverpool Hope said: “The Director of the ADHD Foundation, Dr Tony Lloyd, has worked on several projects with us over the past few years, such as delivering training days on ADHD to our trainee teachers. This conference is a fantastic opportunity to take our partnership work further. Our stand will also act as a showcase for the CPD opportunities we can offer to schools and others, as well as being a great way to show the work being done in partner schools by our trainees.”
