Course Description

for Support Staff: aspiring and developing Team/Middle Leaders

Our popular 2-day team/middle leadership course has been re-designed for Session 2017-18.  Given the demand from colleagues in a range of support staff positions, we are offering dedicated 2-day bespoke programme as a parallel to that offered to teaching colleagues. 

Support staff in schools are required to manage numerous relationships – with a team of staff, line managers, colleagues, parents and those external to the school.  This can be a complex and exhausting business which can detract from the main focus of the role.  

Day one of the course will focus on developing interactions with people to ensure success.  This will include managing difficult situations, performance management of staff, how to give feedback successfully and setting objectives for individual members of a team.

This day will be led by HR Consultant, Sarah Cunningham of Cunningham Consultancy who, prior to setting up her own business in Scotland, has spent the majority of her human resources career in education, including 6 years as HR Manager at The Cheltenham Ladies’ College.  

Day Two will be led by the popular Katie Banham of Learning to Flourish and will develop a number of the core themes introduced during day one.

Katie will take participants on a journey grounded in strengths-based approaches.  She will illustrate how leadership, coaching and teamwork can be enhanced by utilising the  DRIVE  framework,  and empower participants to deploy strategies into their daily practice and enhance their authentic leadership.  

Delegates will be expected to attend both days of the course and will be invoiced for both.  When you register for Day 1, you will automatically be registered for Day 2.                            

**We anticipate this course will be in high demand.  Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 15 September at the latest **

£120 is cost for each day.
