The aim of this course is for those new or experienced leading a team of support staff in school. It’s about standing back from the day to day actions and engagements to reflect on the kind of leader you really want to be. Looking at the qualities of great leaders, you will be encouraged to reflect on your own existing skills and skills you may want to develop. Some of the pitfalls such as losing confidence in yourself or struggling with the challenging conversations are also addressed, giving you food for thought and clear areas for personal development.
