Code: OTSA/20/36 Headteacher Leadership Programme 2020/21

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.

Design Principles:

  • We start with a profound respect for the experience, knowledge, skills and wisdom you bring with you.
  • We think that to develop the leader is to develop the human. There are no short cuts. If you want to develop your leadership it follows you want to evolve yourself as a human being.
  • This is a leader-led programme; you own your own enquiry. You are, so to speak, your own facilitator as well as the learner. Only you can sense the leader you are becoming and gauge its alignment with what you really want to become.
  • The programme participants’ work together will deepen learning and insight.

Facilitation:

The programme is designed and facilitated by Alexander Pett. Alexander is a leadership development and organisational change specialist with 20 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.

Cost: £975 (excluding VAT)

‘No professional development I have done before or since has had such a profound impact on how I lead and how I think. Challenging, rigorous and always fascinating, Alex's programmes deliver sustainable leadership development for all.’   Tom Goodenough, Headteacher, Didcot Girls’ School

'This course gave me a completely new way of thinking about myself as a leader. It provided learning on how to build and maintain effective working relationships that are the backbone of a successful school.'   Emma Coleman, Headteacher, Sandhills Community Primary School

Code: OTSA/20/33 Greg Bottrill: Shaping Confident and Highly Engaged Learners in the Early Years

Join bestselling author and childhood specialist Greg Bottrill in an adventure into the magic of children and discover how to shape confident and highly engaged leaners through the golden blend of play and direct teaching in Early Years.

 The training day takes place at Unipart House Lecture Theatre in Oxford and is an inspirational journey into the heart of childhood in which you will discover your own creativity and curiosity.

The session will explore three cornerstones of childhood: joy, confidence and the world of imagination. Greg will demonstrate how to embrace curiosity and play through three approaches: The Message Centre , Play Projects and Drawing Club - all three of which are embedded in the concept of the magic of children, a door which when you step through can transform your practice and take it to the next level.

The Message Centre is a powerful way of bringing joy to early writing and mark making. Children need to see the purpose for writing, something that isn't always easy but the Message Centre brings purpose in bucketloads! Based around the concept of messaging, The Message Centre is a compelling way to sprinkle magic over your practice. Boys love messaging and this highly engaging approach, makes writing almost ‘addictive’.

Play Projects is an approach that utilises the building blocks of play and is firmly rooted in the idea that choice and emotional connection are critical to learning if children are going to be confident and challenge themselves. Play Projects are big on choice, creativity and collaboration - the very things that children need to gain independence and develop problem solving and critical thinking. Play Projects are ideal as a means of facilitating transition into KS1, but they can be adapted right the way through to Year 6 if schools are seeking to explore how
to make children’s experiences more playful and personal. 

If you want to develop early literacy and a joy of stories with your children, without dominating your continuous provision with 'literacy topic' then Drawing Club is perfect for you! A really exciting way to explore the magic of story that can impact on the whole curriculum. Based on drawing, imagination and language, Drawing Club uses Greg's principle of the 3Ms to turn it into practice that can have extraordinary outcomes for children.
