Event description


Designed for newly-appointed deputy and assistant head teachers, this course explores your role and responsibilities and helps you identify a personal development plan to support or complement your induction into your new position. Feeling confident and equipped to take on new roles and responsibilities is vital to help your school maintain its focus and progress the priorities in your school plan.

Objectives of this course

  • consider the range and scope of roles and responsibilities of deputy and assistant head teachers
  • consider the key areas of headship and identify those where they have already had some experience
  • practise ways of encouraging a problem-solving approach to issues
  • clarify the importance of emotional intelligence in leadership
  • be able to use a range of problem-solving/evaluation techniques when implementing and developing change
  • reflect on the school improvement plan, your job description and appraisal objectives in order to formulate a development plan which provides opportunities for each delegate to build on their strengths and identify areas for further development
  • formulate a draft personal plan which can then be used as a discussion document with your head teacher

Facilitator: Dr Chris Greenland
