deputy Headteachers and Assistant Heads-Module 3

{"json":[{"date":"26/06/2019","location":"Bellavista, Rochdale","places":"places_available"}]}


This is a training day for Deputy Heads and Assistant Heads. It stands in its own right but it has been planned as the third module of three days training for deputy and assistant heads. The focus of the day is on helping delegates develop the key role of being an effective leader of teachers, support staff and teams of staff. Each module is an inset day in its own right. The three modules can be attended in any order.

On completion of the three modules course members will be given the Excellence in Education Certificate for deputy and assistant heads to add to their professional development portfolio.

It is an excellent way for headteachers to address the professional development needs of their deputy and assistant heads. It will equip deputy heads and assistant heads with important key skills to bring back into school to make an effective contribution to the leadership and management team. It is also an excellent course for those aspiring to be deputy heads or assistant heads.

Topics will include:

  • Getting the best from teachers and support staff
  • Improving weak teachers and raising their game
  • Challenging complacency and giving feedback
  • Leading an effective staff development strategy
  • Building effective staffing structures at middle leadership level
  • Resolving staff conflict
  • Delegating responsibility successfully and effectively           
  • The National Teachers’ Standards - including the appraisal and Competency procedures
