Leading for Impact…are you making a difference?
This is a six-session course that will support new and aspiring middle (subject/phase) leaders to undertake their role with confidence! We will begin by revisiting key roles and responsibilities and relate these to the latest framework, teaching standards and today’s educational context. We then will take a ‘deep dive’ into the QA process and how to ensure as leaders, we monitor and evaluate the quality of education effectively. Finally, we will look at the role of a leader in leading and managing change and supporting and developing others. This course will prepare you for the exciting and challenging role of a middle (subject/phase) leader. You will take away a ‘toolkit’ to support you in your role and to enhance your progress and professional development.

About this event
This training course is a reminder of the importance of messy play and sensory exploration within our development. For children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties, messy play and sensory exploration can offer positive experience free from shame and guilt, for those children who may not have experienced it before. This immersion of such play supports brain growth, optimal learning and emotional regulation. Children are able to explore best when they are safe and secure and free from emotional tension. This type of play supports that, in turn, preventing the child’s reptilian brain from becoming triggered. As always when supporting children with SEMH, this course discusses the importance of the adults role within messy play and sensory exploration, along with examples of real practice within our county

Recommended attendees: SENCo and all staff working with children

Standard Cost £32 plus VAT (£38.40 incl VAT)
