This is a course for new and aspiring middle leaders in schools. The course will cover topics such as creating a vision, setting and maintaining high standards, understanding the challenges and opportunities of academic leadership and getting the best out of your team.
For the last part of the course we have a panel of experienced leaders from across the partnership who will answer your questions and discuss the key issues of academic leadership.
This is an elective module available to all leaders participating in the Certificate or Diploma for the Wellington Leaders in Education Programme. This can also be taken as a stand-alone module. Participants will be asked what their particular areas of interest are before the programme and the module will be built around these.
