Leadership and Management
We provide support for all areas of leadership and management linked to the core business of a school or academy; this includes support for leaders at all levels and stages of career.
- Senior Leaders
- Middle Leaders
- Emerging Leaders
Our support can include ‘task focused’ input, e.g. analysing data, evaluation system; and leadership support linked more intrinsically to cultural and system development in your school.
As with all our consultancy, we will tailor input to suit your requirements.
It goes without saying that quality leadership will be at the heart of any successful and effective school or academy. The bullet points below outline some of the training we have offered to work with schools in order to ensure they embed quality leadership.
- Performance coaching for middle leaders
- Challenging others
- Leading your subject
- Effective whole school leadership
- Leadership for improved outcomes
- Leading learning and teaching
- Getting your head around data (for governors)
- Being outstanding
- Leading foundation stage
- New governor induction – a crash course.
Self-evaluation for subject leaders We often find that one of the most effective ways to move leadership on in a school is through bespoke 1:1 or small group coaching and mentoring.
We can easily put together a programme which will meet the needs of the individual/s within the context of your school.
We recognise that whilst schools and academies invest heavily in training and development linked to subject knowledge and professional skills; the success of any organisation is linked to the quality of its people. At Focus, we know how important it is for people to be developed and challenged in order to deliver their best – we are committed to it with our own team.
Part of our core offer involves working with groups, teams and individuals on leadership and personal development. This can be in relation to a specific issue (e.g. a change process, conflict, communication etc.) or a process of investment in the person/people. As our consultants have strong track records in school leadership we are always able to contextualise work for colleagues in school.
All packages of work are tailored to your needs and can be a one-off event or a series of sessions. We have clear expectations about contracting to ensure that that there is an open dialogue with the client and expect this to be shared with participants before the session in order to ensure a truly transparent approach.
Please talk to use about what you require and we will let you know if we can help to meet your specific needs.
