Assistant headteachers : maximising impact

For new and experienced Assistant Headteachers.

"Leadership development is self development", John G Agno

Being an Assistant headteacher in the current school environment is very challenging. It requires AHTs to possess both first-rate leadership skills, knowledge and the personal qualities needed to be highly effective. Focusing on increasing impact, the course provides an opportunity for AHTs to reflect on their current effectiveness and consider aspects of their leadership and management which could be strengthened.
