Learning Model

Five full day and one twilight face to face session combine bursts of theory with practical activity. Between sessions you will be expected to apply your new learning by working on an individual Leadership for Change (L4C) project. This is because we know from research that professional learning needs to be connected to professional development and practice. In other words, this programme will make the most difference to you if you take some of the learning away and apply it in your everyday practice as a leader. Working together with others within and across schools also presents you with an opportunity to collaborate with and learn from colleagues, and to reflect on and extend your leadership skills.

You will be required to:

  • commit time to your L4C project

  • complete specific learning activities and tasks between sessions

  • engage in relevant reading both essential and optional

You will complete a final report at the end of the programme that identifies your learning and will present the outcomes and impact of their L4C project to a group of your colleagues and senior leaders
