Interactive Workshops & Conferences

Interactive Workshops and Conferences are tailor-made and residential for leadership at all levels – including aspiring middle leaders, phase leaders, heads of departments and subject leaders (see testimonials.) One of our most popular conferences is outlined below:-

QM 4 IMPACT ( Quality Management For Impact) -  2s To 1s Management :

Training for Middle Leaders who are  currently seconds in departments and year groups

"Simply the best!"

Effective learning organisations have effective departments, this does not happen by chance. In those schools, Senior Management and Leadership  Teams strive continuously hard to encourage, develop and nurture established Middle Managers,  Succession planning is highly important to  identify those aspiring staff who have the potential to become future Heads of Departments and Learning Managers.

Part of the repertoire of these schools is to ensure that these individuals and groups of staff are exposed to leading edge, high quality, sustainable training.
