Programme Details

The programme is designed to extend leadership skills to take account of culture, project management and the challenges in delivering sustainable change. Practical skills that can be adopted back in the school setting in order to involve and engage a wider group of stakeholders.

This programme has been developed for SENCOs who have completed the SENCO Leadership Development Programme and SENCOs who would benefit from senior leadership training.

• Gain a clear understanding of how culture can affect and impact proposed changes and approaches to working with learners who have SEND

• Receive practical advice and guidance on how to project manage key areas for development so that outcomes are met (and slippage is avoided)

• Receive advice and strategies to support effective school evaluation with clear identification of areas for improvement

• Use Quality First Teaching to lead to whole school improvement

• Reflect on Ofsted, adopting approaches that support evidence based discussions to demonstrate impact

• Be able to use data effectively to help narrow the gap in achievement within the school, making sure there is an evidence base to justify actions

• Enhance financial management skills, evidencing how SEN budgets have been spent with the resulting outcomes for vulnerable learners

“This has been the most thought provoking and powerful course I have been on since my initial training.”

“Really, really enjoying the course, which is pitched at the right level, challenges your thinking and stretches understanding of Leadership.”
