GORSE Leaders: Excellence in Middle leadership
Last year Senior Leaders from across the trust also worked collaboratively to develop a new programme, the Excellence in Middle Leadership programme, and this programme has been further developed by Richard Chattoe and Scott Cosgrove at The Farnley Academy, for participants to actively engage with over the course of the 2016-17 academic year. The Excellence in Middle Leadership programme has four compulsory units: Vision and Action Planning, Understanding data, Professional Development of others and Teaching from the Top. Each module, and the accompanying tasks, have been carefully designed to complement, and link directly, to the on-going work of outstanding middle leaders.
We recognise that middle leaders have an incredibly important remit and impact greatly on our students, parents/carers, colleagues and governing body and therefore we are extremely keen to support them in all aspects of their role. We also recognise, and embrace, that personal professional development and career progression is of great importance and it is therefore important that we seek opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, confidence and experience required for middle leaders to progress on to the next stage of career.
