A SEF is for Life not just for Ofsted

Led by

David Thompson

Detail

This one-day course will guide you through the production of an accurate, concise, evaluative self-evaluation form rooted in evidence. At the end of the day you will take away a very good first draft of your self-evaluation form closely aligned with the key areas from the Ofsted inspection framework and reflecting the new primary school accountability measures. This course will be particularly beneficial for new Headteachers.

Who will be inspecting my good school?

Led by

David Thompson

Detail

On the 10th January 2017 Ofsted announced via social media that short inspections will no longer be exclusively HMI led. The short inspection of your “good” school could now be led by an Ofsted Inspector, probably a serving Headteacher. This will lead to some inspections being split into two parts with a gap of a day in-between. This one day course, led by David Thompson, will consider the possible implications of this significant change to Ofsted’s ways of working and how best to prepare. It will be particularly beneficial for new school leaders in good schools or school leaders of good schools that have not been inspected since 2011-2012.

Coaching for Middle Leaders

Led by

Mark Noblet

Detail

These days, everyone is a coach because someone on a leadership course said that all leaders must be coaches. Some leaders have a natural aptitude for coaching. Others find coaching does not come so easily. All leaders can improve their coaching; they just need time to hone the skills that they use each day in every conversation.
