Headteacher Appraisal

  • Help you to understand the best way to undertake this key task so that the best possible outcomes are achieved.
  • Support you to write effective objectives for your headteacher
  • Familiarise you with the New Headteacher Standards January 2015.

Managing Premises & Capital Projects

This module will explore both the general responsibilities that the governing body and school staff have for the management of their school premises along with specific advice on the management of capital projects. 

It will give the opportunity for participants to ‘manage’ two virtual school building projects from conception to completion.  Participants will be guided through the relevant steps and provided with guidance on statutory requirements and checks.  Areas to be covered will include: 

  • Project planning
  • Applying for funding

·    Drafting specifications and managing statutory requirements: CDM regulations, H&S, insurances

  • Dealing with challenges during a project
  • Managing ‘snagging’ and project close

Participants will be encouraged to discuss past experiences and share learning with others.

It is hoped that the case study approach will make the training realistic and accessible.

Head Teacher Recruitment & Succession Planning

Appointing a new Head Teacher is probably the most important task that a governing body undertakes. There is a considerable body of evidence indicating that the quality of a school’s head teacher is the single most significant factor in its success. Appointing a high-quality head to lead teaching and learning in your school is something under the direct control of Governors that positively affects school improvement.

During this session we will be looking at:

  • Steps in the Head Teacher recruitment process
  • Defining your school’s needs
  • Attracting the best candidates
  • Selection
  • Appointment
  • Induction

AND considering the questions and actions governors can take to sustain effective leadership over time.
