Leadership Development Course
Who Is It For?
Teachers in the early stages of their career who are looking to develop their early leadership and co-ordinator skills (not suitable for NQTs)
What Does It Involve?

Key areas covered during face-to-face sessions:

Professional development and practical strategies to support subject leadership
Delegates will collate a practical working folder to use as a Subject Leader. Gap tasks will include observation, monitoring and leading projects/presenting information at whole school level.
Mentors will need to commit to a 1 hour review meeting with delegates following each of the face-to-face sessions.
