Course description

This programme is for both existing team leaders as well as those with clear leadership potential for senior whole-school responsibilities. It will also reflect the needs of Specialist Leaders in Education.

The three-day course seeks to meet the needs of experienced school leaders who wish to develop their ideas about more senior levels of school leadership, who wish to maximise their skills and effectiveness - and who also seek to make further professional progress. The programme will be underpinned by an emphasis on the key skills of coaching and constructive communication.

The course will also use the unifying vehicle of an individual ‘senior leadership focus’ (research option) to generate learning.

This programme was run very successfully in previous years with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Comments include:

'Course delivered in a lively, engaging & inspiring way.'

'Ed Lott, fantastic, motivational speaker, learnt a lot about leadership styles'

'Improving the vision/roles of the SLT can only have a positive impact on learning.'



Training objectives

Build a local network of senior leaders as ‘reflective practitioners’.
Investigate the core issues of the senior levels of school leadership.
Develop coaching skills and team-building.
Consider the whole-school implications of current developments in education.
Prepare senior school leaders for ‘next step’ promotion at assistant, deputy and head level.

Learning outcomes

Each participant will develop a clearer picture of their current role and responsibilities and the requirements of working at the most senior levels in school. Colleagues will develop a sense of their future professional needs; and will be enabled to articulate their contribution to their own school’s progress and also the wider development of their local school network. The course will also use the unifying vehicle of an individual ‘senior leadership focus’ (research option) to generate learning.
