This course is suitable for middle and senior leaders, both academic and pastoral, who have a need to assess performance and drive improvement.

Middle leadership can be a tricky business and requires a broad range of skills. This course focuses on some of these skills, especially those involved in monitoring and evaluating performance. We will consider the purpose of monitoring and evaluating in academic and pastoral settings and look at a wide range of techniques that can be employed. During the day we will cover a range of topics, including lesson observations and pupil voice, that will support you in developing tools to help you monitor effectiveness in departments or across a whole school.

Course Aims:

  • To discuss a range of tools that can be used by middle and senior leaders to monitor effectiveness of provision in school and be used to raise standards
