Ofsted’s Brian Cartwright HMI confirmed for ASE conference

Ofsted’s recently appointed National Adviser for Science Brian Cartwright HMI, has been confirmed as a key speaker at the ASE Annual Conference in Liverpool in January.

He will kick off the National Advisers and Inspectors Group for Science day at the conference on Friday 6 January.

Brian studied Chemistry at Imperial College, continuing onto a PhD in Chemical Crystallography at the university. He then completed four years of post-doctoral research at Cambridge University (The Crystallographic Data Centre), focussing on computer graphics.

After completing his PGCE at Cambridge, Brian worked as a chemistry and physics teacher in the East Midlands before taking up secondary headship in Shropshire. Brian joined Ofsted eight years ago, and led the rapid response survey team before taking up the National Adviser for Science role this Autumn.

Book your place at the Annual Conference to see Brian Cartwright HMI on Friday 6 January from 9.30 to 10.30 in the library of the Oliver Lodge Building at the University of Liverpool.

The National Advisers and Inspectors Group for Science day will offer the opportunity to get an Ofsted update for school improvement professionals and the latest on NAIGS accreditation.
