Effective educational leadership makes the most significant difference in improving learning and successful student outcomes. This may be direct or indirect leadership and be exercised in a number of ways. Ideally, school leaders are ‘instructional’ leaders while those that effect significant and sustained change can be referred to as ‘transformational’. There are virtually no documented examples of schools facing challenge being turned around without the intervention of a powerful, strategic leader. Principals cannot do the whole leadership task by themselves. Leaders are needed at all levels in a school even though accountability remains at the top level.

Participants will:

  • Undertake assessment to determine and understand their own leadership style and how it determines their actions
  • Learn about the traits of very successful school leaders
  • Understand how regulatory authorities assess the capabilities of school leaders
  • Undertake a piece of action research in their own schools before sharing this with other course delegates
  • Learn how to promote their vision or manage change
  • Investigate the strengths and weaknesses of different leadership structures within a school

This course is the nexus of a suite of ‘Leadership’ courses; it may be taken as a stand-alone course or be combined with one or more from the suite.

This course will provide delegates with insights into assessment and the tools to critically examine practice in their own schools. Results from schools prove that effective assessment and instruction make the greatest difference to school improvement. There is a wealth of research on which instructional strategies make the biggest difference in student achievement. It is so tempting to choose assessment methods that are “easy to grade,” but best practice tells us that we should choose those methods that best enable us to see if students have a deep understanding of the essential questions.

Meanwhile, data from assessment can be a powerful tool to raise individual student achievement, individual teacher, whole department and whole school performance. However, teachers need support to improve assessment and differentiated instructional practices based on analysis of assessment data. As the key role of a school leader is to be an instructional leader, this support must come from within.

Participants will:

  • Undertake a critical analysis of current assessment practice in their own school
  • Debate the strengths and weaknesses of traditional forms of assessment, examining alternatives to these
  • Establish sound rationale for assessing student work
  • Learn how to create differentiated assessments using increasingly higher-order thinking skills
  • Undertake an in-school project to improve an area of assessment trialling new methods within an area of the school. This will be presented to other delegates and shared on-line

Effective learning to include relevant, accessible, successful learning may require re-aligning the curriculum. Changing curriculum and setting higher expectations is all well and good, but it will only lead to frustration unless ways are found to help students meet these expectations. This means identifying strategies to help students with a wide range of styles, difficulties, interests and strengths. “Personalization” is structuring experiences and building relationships that make learning meaningful to a given student.

Participants will:

  • Discover what a personalized curriculum looks like
  • Examine the advantages and disadvantages of accelerate programs
  • Assess a number of alternatives to traditional academic curriculums and talk to those who are currently undertaking them or have previously done so
  • Investigate the power of Small Learning Communities
  • Debate the impact of differentiation on student outcomes
  • Undertake an in-school project planning programme for either S.E.N. or Gifted & Talented students. This will be shared with other delegates who will have the opportunity to discuss the programme with those on whom it impacted

A top-notch school-wide professional development plan is created by a collaborative team effort. It is realistic, school-wide, clear, detailed and tied to the school’s aims and student achievement goals.

This course will provide delegates with the tools to design a varied, contextualized continuing professional development program that will have the greatest impact on student achievement in their school.

Participants will:

  • Examine traditional professional development experiences and why these are often unsuccessful
  • Discover a variety of alternatives to traditional professional development
  • Take part in an active solutions-focused exercise designed to demonstrate the use of sustainable, experiential learning
  • Devise a model professional development program based on specific  needs

Effective allocation of time and resources is the key to realizing improvements in student achievement. How effectively do school leaders use time? How much time falls into the ‘value-added’ category and how much is wasted? How often is the physical environment and staffing assessed to ensure the best possible allocation, or does historical inertia act as a limiting factor so ‘This is the way it has always been’ is never challenged? These all will be answered as you pursue the program.

Participants will:

  • Consider old versus new thinking on resource allocation and use of time
  • Examine excellent practice using case studies in schools requiring change
  • Assess their own school’s resource allocation using a tried-and-tested diagnostic tool
  • Understand how inspection findings can be used to trigger change in how a school organizes its space, staff and resources
  • Plan more effective allocation of resources in one key area of their own school
  • Learn how to influence those who may be reluctant to allocate additional funding
  • Examine how to restructure the physical environment without requiring additional funding

In the absence of a carefully structured system of appraisal, people tend to judge the work performance of others, including subordinates, naturally, informally and arbitrarily.

This workshop examines a school’s particular context and assists Senior managers in setting up a realistic, easily manageable performance management system.

The most effective professional development is often found within schools. There are few schools that do not have excellent practitioners. However, it can feel really daunting standing up in front of others as the 'expert'. People expect a lot when they go on a course, and a 'run of the mill' training puts people to sleep or fails to energise trainees so desired changes don’t happen.

This course is for those who want to learn how to engage, enliven, inspire and motivate those they present to, giving them simple usable skills and a suite of possible activities for their own workshops. 

Participants will : 

  • Learn to adapt their style and material to suit the situation

This whole-staff training demonstrates how taking learning out of the text book is an effective and necessary part of today’s education. The challenge utilises experiential learning as a professional development tool for improving teaching and learning.

Both teaching and support staff are divided into equal teams allowing for different talents and areas of expertise. Each team receives a remit for the challenge based on a topic related to UAE life and culture. The remit sets out a number of compulsory and optional tasks the team must complete. The team can organize themselves in any way they wish to complete the tasks, however a number of visits are made to each group and points are awarded for teamwork and leadership.

In the workshop of two consecutive days, the participants will:

  • Develop teamwork across a whole staff and improve cohesiveness and understanding for the talents of others
  • Experience how enjoyable learning can be outside a textbook and understand how this can be used to improve teaching and learning
  • Increase knowledge and understanding of many aspects of UAE life and culture; woven into the school curriculum
  • Develop their ability to plan quality lessons with a range of assessment opportunities

We also offer a half day workshop on how to run the Step Ahead Challenge with your students as a tool to develop independent learning and problem solving skills.
