This event is being held by West Midlands Children’s Improvement Board and it's a follow-on from the operational peer challenge of all 14 local authority’s self-assessments by DCSs and their strategic managers in October 2014. 

 

The self-assessment peer challenges have identified key themes for improvement going forward into 2015/16 in the region and this Summit will bring Chief Executives, Lead Members and Scrutiny Chairs, Directors with responsibility for Children’s Services and LSCB chairs together to share the emerging themes and priorities. 

 

The aims for the day are to:

  • Bring leaders together across the system to have one conversation around improvement priorities, activity and outcomes
  • Prioritise improvement activities for 2015/16
  • Celebrate good practice that is happening in the region
  • Work together on a regional challenge on a specific theme across the leadership system.

 

The CIB held a similar summit last March and the feedback was very positive therefore, the consensus was it would be useful to do it again this year.
