Course Description

For Aspiring and Developing Middle and Senior Leaders

Day 1 & 2 - 1/2 October 2019

Day 3 & 4 - 20/21 January 2020

Day 5 & 6 - 7/8 May 2020

This well established and popular leadership development programme is designed for aspiring and developing school leaders from junior and senior schools.  The programme provides an excellent opportunity for reflection and discussion on a range of issues relevant to school leadership.  It is a residential course, comprising 3 core 2-day periods spread over 3 terms.  Presentations, workshops and discussions will be led by experienced leaders, in the world of education and beyond.  This programme has been accredited by the GTCS for Professional Recognition – further information here – and participants have the option to elect for this route which will culminate in a written submission.  Participants are expected to undertake suggested activities in their school context in between the course days in order get the most from the course experience and to support reflection and professional discussion during the programme.  Background reading will be a recommended part of the course and relevant titles will be suggested as the course topics are covered.

This session, the programme has the established contributors, with highlights being day one which is led by Katie Banham of Learning to Flourish, and day four which is led by Emma Bell.  We are excited to announce 2 additions to the Programme;  participants will have the opportunity to work with the renowned Ewan McIntosh, Founder and CEO of NoTosh; and have an opportunity to explore values based leadership  with colleagues from Columba 1400.  Equally, we are delighted with the many SCIS school leaders who contribute to the Programme, adding a rich diversity.

There will be a Leadership Revisited event during session 2020-2021 which will build on the topics covered during the core programme and be tailored to meet the development requests of the group. 

There will be a maximum of 26 delegates, who will be expected to attend all 6 days of the core programme. The residential nature of the course is a very valuable part of the programme and enables delegates to get the most out of the opportunity for networking and professional dialogue. 

As the course has limited places, early booking is recommended.  When you register for Days 1 & 2, you will automatically be registered for all 6 days of the core course. Booking for the Leadership Revisited session will be confirmed at a later stage.
