Leadership Development Course

Course Overview

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?


The course consists of 4 sessions (day 1 - full day and 4 half day sessions). Each delegate will need a link mentor in school for gap tasks and support.

Key areas covered during face-to-face sessions:


  • Establishing Priorities

  • Improving the quality of Learning & Teaching

  • Management and deployment of resources

  • 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.
