Developing Leadership in Catholic Primary and Secondary Schools
As part of the continuing professional development programme at St Ambrose Barlow Teaching Alliance, we currently have a great opportunity for prospective middle and senior leaders in Catholic schools to reflect on what it really means to lead a Catholic School in the 21st Century. Developing Leadership in Catholic Primary and Secondary Schools is a four day course, starting this September.
Leadership of Catholic schools, both at middle and senior level, is distinctive. We strive for excellence in achievement and standards alongside the development of the whole person as a child of God. This course offers an insight into Catholic leadership, regardless of personal faith background, encompassing the academic and the practical. Delegates will see outstanding teaching practice in a Catholic framework; they will shadow outstanding leaders and also investigate the distinctive role of Catholic ethos in performance management, whole school policy setting and the Faith Development Plan.
What you will take away from the training course:
• How to lead change to improve the quality of whole school teaching and learning
• Practical ways to reduce variability and close the gap in achievement
• Learn with and from other experienced leaders
• An understanding of system leadership and learning leadership in a Catholic school
• An opportunity to reflect on leadership and ambitions
• Identify your own personal effectiveness and how it can develop beyond the programme.
