Deputy Head Programme (Day 4 of 6)

Focus: Leadership and Management
For: Deputies, vice-principals, assistant heads, aspiring senior leaders


Module 4: Systems Thinking (Cornerstone 2: Coherence)

Six Dimensions has been designed to explore the role of Deputy Head/Assistant Head in moving a school towards outstanding and keeping it there. For future educational leadership to have a continual impact, there is a need for all senior leaders to master and demonstrate a modern set of leadership behaviours and attitudes.

This programme offers the knowledge and skills to enable senior leaders to articulate a vision for increasing the effectiveness of continuous improvement and to design and implement an appropriate strategy for whole school improvement that is focused on maximising pupil outcomes. It addresses the ‘big picture’ of what contributes to organisational success and the role played by Deputy Heads/ Assistant Heads in optimising cultural conditions that maximise learning through focusing on results.

The programme has been designed around three key cornerstones and six modules with each module developed around an inquiry-approach towards educational leadership, engaging participants in deep professional thinking and learning. A range of learning processes and protocols will be adopted, ensuring full engagement and an opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals at a national level.

Aspects explored during these modules include: Understanding the key influences on school effectiveness; Professional processes for increasing capital and capacity for improvement; Good accountability and effective influence; Standing still is not an option; A new model for continuous school improvement; Using multiple lenses to increase perceptions.
