'Leading for Excellence' Online Training - Starts in January 2021!

The Leading for Excellence programme is developed and led by Mark Burns: passionate speaker, leader and facilitator with over 12 years teaching experience. Mark has co-authored several books on teaching and leading including ’Teaching Backwards’ and, most recently, ‘The Learning Imperative’, winner of the Business Book Awards 2019 in the HR and management category. It is this book that provides the rich content and process for the programme.

The programme curriculum focuses on knowledge, behaviours and mindframes to support leaders to effectively lead and manage both in their current roles and for the future. It will provide them with a practical framework to develop others and themselves sustainably.

The programme supports participants to:

  • Critically evaluate their practice

  • Evaluate the way their teams operate and explore strategies to develop greater autonomy through shared clarity
  • Feel equipped with tools and theories to role model back in school
  • Ensure slow thinking becomes habitual within their team
  • Look ahead to the next stage in their career
