Implementing Change – A Middle Leaders Guide to School Improvement

This programme is designed and facilitated to enable Middle Leaders to develop their understanding of leadership and to implement and manage a focused school project to affect measurable impact and sustainable change.

The programme will be sustained over two terms, including a series of face to face sessions, follow on coaching support and an opportunity to engage in triad learning with other Middle Leaders and experience leadership in different context through participation in an enquiry visit process.
