Dan Edwards

Building the capacity for creativity.

Leaving school with two exam passes possibly wasn't the greatest start but Dan has worked in education for many years and has held leadership roles in both the secondary and primary sectors. Most recently, holding the role of Principal for five years at a large inner-city primary school until finally moving into Executive Leadership.

Having work extensively in the creative arts prior to his work in education,Dan is passionate about the need for students and pupils to think creatively. Not only for them to appreciate the world around them but to ensure that they can apply creativity and their imagination to their wider studies and their adult life. The world is short of thinkers and this session will allow students to feel empowered to embrace and develop their imagination.
