Secure Your First Leadership Role – Preparing for Senior Leadership

In this course, which is the first of three courses on the subject of securing a SLT position, Matt Bromley talks about finding the right role for you and about how to articulate your suitability for that role.  He also explores four qualities of effective school leaders and explains how you can set out your leadership vision. 

As well as being useful for individual CPD, this course could form the basis of in-school 121 coaching for prospective members of SLT. 

This course has been developed by Matt Bromley who has over twenty years’ experience in teaching and leadership including as headteacher, principal and MAT director of education.  He is now a school improvement advisor, teacher-trainer and public speaker.  He regularly speaks at national and international conferences, and he is a regular contributor to a number of education magazines including TES and SecEd.  He is the author of a number of books on education including How to Become a School Leader, How to Lead, and School & College Curriculum Design.

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
