This programme is for Primary and Secondary Team, Middle and Senior Leaders who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of effective Leadership. They will explore their own leadership style and that of others, discover the advantages and challenges this can bring, explore and adjust their approaches to leadership and understand how to apply this within their individual school contexts. OfSTED have reported on the impact of this programme during school inspection reports.

Delegate Testimonials
“For me the biggest value was working with other delegates, sharing ideas, challenging ourselves and each other. Every leader should go on this course”

“The OLE programme has provided me with a fabulous opportunity to stop and reflect on what outstanding Leadership really is, and to recognise aspects of this in my own practice”

“Each session the ‘Professional Audit of Leadership Skills’ enabled me to pinpoint immediate next-steps. I knew exactly what I was going to do back in school”

“Our Team has already adopted some of the ‘Models’ as they are simple to understand yet really effective when explored/put into practice”
