School leadership is a challenging and rewarding job that requires determination, flexibility and a careful understanding of the people you work with.

  • Discover what authentic leadership really means
  • Avoid the perils of ‘leadersh*t’ and how it can divert you from important work
  • Understand how to find your support network
  • Engage with the practical aspects of whole school policy on inclusion and behaviour
  • Consider how to deal with the unexpected and how to lead in times of crisis
