Headship is a unique leadership role where the success of a whole school is deeply related to personal awareness, insight and effectiveness. One of the most important leadership roles in society, headship affects the flourishing and well-being of children, not just during their years of schooling but throughout their lives. The unique demands of the headteacher role require unique development, and this is why we offer this programme.
Overall the objective is to inspire, support, challenge and nurture you in taking up your current role with even more effectiveness, insight, authority and impact.
The programme is designed and facilitated by Alexander Pett. Alexander is a leadership development and organisational change specialist with 19 years’ experience of helping senior leaders to establish the leadership capabilities and behaviours necessary to underpin performance improvement. Previously Alexander was Director of Leadership and Talent for Kingfisher Group and before this was Head of Leadership and Talent Development for BT Global Services. He began his career as a secondary school teacher in Hampshire.
