Leadership for all levels: an immersion approach to CPD

There are three courses, all of which examine different aspects of leadership. Each course is comprised of seven sessions grouped into three themes. The unique thing about them is that they are for leaders of all levels, from Subject Lead to Executive Principal.

Available courses

 
 
 
 

Curriculum: Intent, Implementation, Impact

Curriculum is the lifeblood of a school, its USP. With renewed focus, leaders audit curricula, create actions to explore change and ultimately assess its impact


 

Theme: Know It - Intent

Sessions

  • Unique Selling Points: Why your school?

  • Broad, balanced, deep and rich? Pedagogy as a choice

  • Bold beginnings, Age or Stage? Cognitive mapping and progression

Theme: Know How - Implement

Sessions

  • Structure: Learning, assessing, planning, teaching - embedding a cyclical approach

  • Narrative: capturing authentic voices, what actually works, sharing what works

Theme: Know What - Impact

Sessions

  • Curriculum offering Vs actual content, capturing external voices

  • Making the change, being brave, standing out and streamlining

 

The programme comprises seven individual sessions best experienced as complete course. It is designed around Ofsted’s recent inspection framework update.

It is possible to dip in and out of individual sessions if a school teacher has prior experience of curriculum design.

Each session is approximately 2 to 3 hours depending on content. To have the greatest impact, the complete programme should be completed over nine months with four or week gaps.

It is possible for the programme to be condensed into three 1-day sessions. This is particularly useful if an organisation wants to train 5 to 10 people instensively at the start of an academic year.


Organisation offer

£4000 (5 to 20 people; suggested two per setting)

1:1 Executive Coaching is available for an additional £750 per participant for five sessions during the course programme
