ROOTS AND WINGS LEADERSHIP
Updated 25 days ago
In this initiative, three-way international partnering between individual headteachers is used to raise their effectiveness and their impact within schools... At the start of each yearly cycle heads will meet as a group for focussed development activities led by coaches. They will then go to the partner schools to begin an effectiveness project within the context of the individual school. In the intervening period between each visit - as the school effectiveness intervention develops - the heads will communicate with each other electronically. At the end of the 3 year period the gains will be evaluated and the 3 year project reviewed as a model to develop European leadership. Individual reports for each partnership, an overall evaluation report and an international conference will evaluate and disseminate the results... To provide secondary school leaders with structured opportunities to develop their own leadership and management within a context that challenges present assumptions..
