aspiring middle leaders course

Aspiring Middle Leaders

Course overview

This course is designed to support aspiring middle leaders and early middle leaders. You will learn about leadership theory with a practical twist!

You will be introduced to a number of core leadership competencies and it will help to prepare you for the new NPQs that are now available.

Throughout the duration of the course, you will explore leadership styles and models and develop personal self-awareness in order to reflect on your own leadership approach in real work situations.

There will be a focus on effective leadership of a team and about leadership through change; something we are all grappling with, and you will consider how to plan for and deliver effective implementation and about building an effective school culture. You will share your journey with others at a similar stage of development thereby learning about other school contexts and a range of ways of responding to different situations.

The course takes a blended learning approach, through a mix of both face-to-face and online sessions.
