Angela Hannan – Former secondary headteacher & lead facilitator for the National College for School Leadership
Through a mix of input and practical activity participants will have an opportunity to explore their situations, look at theories around building high performing teams, practise key leadership skills and engage in a coaching exercise around current challenging situations.
Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of, and enhanced levels of skills required to build and sustain high performing teams
The course fee includes the cost of a highly useful workbook, published by Hay group, which will build on learning and provide ongoing development and support in the workplace.
'Previous participants on the course found that the learning experience was greatly enriched by the refreshing diversity of roles within the group ranging from teaching team leaders and teaching assistant leaders to kitchen leaders and office team leaders. By the end of the 2 days there were clearly raised levels of appreciation of each other's critical roles in school and enhanced self-confidence in their own ability to carry out their roles well'.
‘Thank you very much for a very enjoyable, but very useful 2 days. I have learnt so much and feel a lot more confident with my new role.’
‘Very useful and informative, giving lots of ideas to think about! I know feel that I can develop as a team leader and ‘lead’ not just ‘manage’ the team. Thank you Angela’.
‘Angela is an excellent facilitator’
‘Very valuable to have an eclectic group of team leaders from different areas of school, to give a more rounded view of the challenges we all face.’
