I like the practical aspect of the programme. As we move into next term it’s very much a practice based approach, which means we’ll be able carry out a meaningful project that helps deliver improvement in our own school while learning about the theoretical context of leadership
Being a Fellow has raised my profile within my local authority and beyond, as I have been asked to participate in Leadership developments at local and national level. All of these have helped me develop my own leadership thinking and practice which have had impacts for learners not only within my own schools, but those outwith.
Excellent delivery and really engaging. Practical thinking strategies and thought provoking. Will definitely take my ideas back to school.
