Code: OTSA/19/62 Early Headship Programme 2019/20

We are pleased to invite you to take part in the Oxfordshire Early Headship Programme. OTSA and OCC recognise that early headship is a critical phase in a leaders’ development and in the development of a school.

This programme will address key leadership themes, provide the opportunity for headteachers in their first or second year of headship to connect with each other and engage in solution-focused activities as well as providing one-to-one coaching support from an experienced headteacher. Through investing in this programme for the headteacher the school is investing in its future.

Leadership Themes
You will attend a series of six termly face-to-face sessions each focusing on a key leadership theme. Each session will provide materials, resources and activities to support school based learning, and of course excellent networking opportunities. This strand of the programme will be jointly led by experienced headteachers, Tracey Smith and Tina Farr. There will also be contributions from other experienced and successful headteachers.

1:1 Coaching

Coaching is recognised as highly effective professional development, particularly for leadership roles. Research shows that coaching improves performance, increases confidence and motivation, develops and enhances leadership skills and helps leaders deal with the challenges of their role such as managing teams, improving relationships and making good decisions. This strand of the programme will provide you with an experienced colleague, and OTSA trained coach, who will listen to you and help you to shape your identity as a school leader. You will take part in up to 6 one-hour coaching sessions over the year arranged at mutually convenient times and locations.

Code: OTSA/19/101 Leading the EYFS with Skill and Confidence (EVENT FULL)

To lead a team effectively and inspire a continual drive towards excellence requires highest quality leadership

This long-term project will support leaders to deepen their understanding of the multi-faceted nature of their role, ensuring they are able to motivate and inspire their teams, whilst remaining focused on what matters for young children. The programme has been designed to provide you with many opportunities to reflect upon your own expertise and enrich your professional knowledge of outstanding early years education.

Throughout the course,  you will be invited to participate in a variety of gap tasks. Each will be designed to support you in your leadership journey and there will be opportunities to share and celebrate the groups learning on a fourth day to be arranged with delegates.

 This course is being run in Oxfordshire for OTSA by Early Excellence

The three dates are: 13th January, 9th March & 25th June 2020

The cost for this course is £385+ VAT

The details of the three days are as follows:
Day 1 - Leading Values and agreeing outstanding practice in the Early Years

The project will begin by establishing clarity about what we want for young children and confident learners through school, taking delegates back to their motivations as educators as well as establishing a clear vision of excellence and strategy for school. The afternoon will explore the key elements of best practice and how the optimum conditions for learning are created for their children. We will then look at current methods of reflection and how they inform priorities for change.

Day 2 – Leading People

During the day we will consider and decide on how to effectively manage and lead others. Methods of mentoring and a range of performance management techniques including staff led action research will be shared and explored. From this, leaders will have begun to design effective staff development programmes as well as raising the profile of Early Years within whole school improvement strategies and the wider Early Years community.

Day 3 – Leading Accountability

A review of current approaches to assessment and how data can be used to inform practice as well as whole school strategy and operational systems. The rationale behind your choice of recording, documenting and reporting progress to internal and external partners, including parents, will be discussed and explored.
