Aims of the course:

This course is deisgned around four leadership competencies:

  • Establishing Priorities

  • Improving the quality of Learning & Teaching

  • Management and deployment of resources

  • Professional development and practical strategies to support subject leadership

The course aims to address the essential skills and practice to provide participants with a clear understanding of how to effectively lead and manage a subject across the Primary phase, and to reflect on the how the role can bring about improvements at a whole school and individual pupil level.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop skills and strategies to evaluate a subject at whole-school level in an educational context.

Suitable for:

Primary school educators (who are looking to develop their early / middle leadership and subject co-ordinator skills; and is highly pertinent to staff who are beginning to take on Line Management or team Leadership).

This developmental learning programme will help prepare staff for the next stage of middle leadership training such as NPQML or similar programmes. 

The programme blends a focus on the operational aspects of early leadership with consideraion of growing you as an individual. You will explore leadership models to look at how to develop successful relationships, understand and communicate with colleagues and motivate yourself and others.

  • Formulate valid conclusions that link theory to practice which consolidate effective subject leadership;

  • Deploy effective communication strategies;
