Middle Leaders Development Programme 2018-19

This programme is for all colleagues who ‘lead from the classroom’, who are required to combine classroom commitments with wider whole-school responsibilities. The three-day course will establish the main building blocks of successful leadership. And seeks to meet the needs of those who wish to develop their ideas about wider school leadership, maximise their skills and effectiveness – and who also wish 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 a ‘leadership focus’ to generate learning.

Course Delivery

The programme will be delivered by Ed Lott. Ed is an ex-headteacher and is a former National College for School Leadership Associate Leader with over thirty years’ experience in education and professional development. Full programme notes and online support are included.
