Leadership Development

While remote working, it can be difficult to find time to attend full development programmes. However, current circumstances also provide a great opportunity to focus on your development needs. We have adapted the Assistant Principal (AP) programme to give you the opportunity to reflect on your people leadership, oversight and functional responsibilities in shorter sessions.  The modules prompt discussion and reflection on the appropriate leadership mindset, skillset and practical toolset that APs can draw on to work better with and through others to achieve objectives. You can self-manage your learning with pre, intra and post modular activities and learning.  

This programme is designed to assist people newly promoted into the Assistant Principal role to align their skill sets and approaches with the needs and expectations of this senior leadership role.

Changing work practices, merging work and home life and developing new skills to work remotely could be seen as a wonderful opportunity or a significant challenge.  How we each deal with changes and differences that confront us has a significant impact on our effectiveness as leaders and as individuals.  The awareness of how and why we respond to different circumstances is an essential element of leadership.  The more we understand ourselves and the greater awareness we have of how different people cope with tension and conflict the better we control our reactions, remain focused on our purpose, retain positive working relationships and be satisfied with our performance.

This programme is aimed at developing within individuals the capacity to understand and change organisational systems and to understand and change oneself.

A key objective is to build capacity in individuals to operate outside of their functional responsibilities and to broaden their understanding of organisational and system issues, enhancing their ability to operate at a strategic level. The programme therefore challenges individuals to move beyond their current functional roles and behaviour; to open up to approaches when working with others to achieve goals and to generate more efficient and innovative outcomes.

4 x Two-Day Modules
