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 and impact as leaders in organisations and as individuals in life.  

Building our awareness of how and why we respond in different circumstances is an essential step in identifying more appropriate and supportive behaviours and approaches. Maintaining positive and trusting work relationships and team environments is critical to team and organisational performance and central to demonstrating effective leadership and management.

This course presents an opportunity to learn how to better control your reactions, to remain focused on purpose and help others through conflictual situations.
