Five representatives from the educational arm of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church (PBCC), OneSchool Global, took the stage at the 2023 EDUtech conference in Amsterdam, which brings together some of the brightest and most innovative thought leaders in education from across the globe.

“Presenting at an EDUtech conference is a great privilege and to see five of our educators taking to the stage at EDUtech Europe is an excellent reflection of the innovative work taking place across OneSchool Global,” said Matthew Phillips, Global Head of Education.

OneSchool Global UK Digital Learning Coaches Bethany Sloan and Luke Clark were the first of the OSG contingent to present. Taking to the Innovation Stage, Bethany and Luke presented “Alternative perspectives: Younger Educators Leading in the Information Age”.

Bethany and Luke’s presentation discussed how schools can leverage the skills of digital-native, early-career teachers in digital leadership roles, at a time where the statistics tell us that many of their peers are leaving the profession within five years of becoming a qualified teacher.

“The title of our presentation ‘Younger Educators Leading in the Information Age’ is truly reflective of the unique career progression opportunities available at OneSchool,” said Bethany.

“Luke and I are earlier career teachers, and we are very much supported to bring our unique skillset to our leadership roles. Presenting at EDUtech Europe was an exciting opportunity to challenge other schools and leaders to embrace what younger educators bring to the table”.
