Middle leadership skills

Do your middle leaders see themselves as leaders? Are they equipped with the skills to carry out lesson observations, give effective feedback to others, conduct pupil voice, carry out learning walks, and scruitinise books?

Having the time to train middle leaders in developing these skills and supporting them in using the results to impact on pupil outcomes is not easy. Outsourcing this support and training can add additional capacity and ensure that teachers are well equipped to carry out leadership activities. Mix and match modules to suit your staff.
