Aspiring Senior Leadership Development
This intensive leadership programme is comprised of three core elements. Element 1 involves a full day workshop and taught sessions (see outline below). Element 2 is a School-based experience. This is intended to provide experience of genuine leadership issues. Element 3 is Coaching which is a central component of leadership learning and development. Coaching will be provided in the participant’s own school, as part of the placement and through peer support, for example, supporting each other through peer coaching, sharing ideas and resources for the leadership placement. There will be five workshops held at regular intervals across the academic year. Each workshop will include:
Sharing progress, issues and successes
Focusing on a specific issue in effective leadership
Time for peer coaching sessions
Case studies from outstanding leaders
Facilitating networks and learning visits
Clinical review and analysis of school issues
Reflection and learning review
Venue will be either South Yorkshire or Cambridge, decided by the location of the majority of participants.
The safeguarding network provides the opportunity for designated safeguarding leads to come together to discuss specific safeguarding concerns, share best practice and further develop collaborative practice across Astrea Academy Trust.
