AND... challenge number two...

One of the keys to brilliant learning places is brilliant leadership but are we doing enough to develop powerful and effective leadership in all our schools. We are working with Steve Munby and his colleagues at the National College for School Leadership but we need to do more. I spoke to Brian Tuffin about this and we agreed that we need to develop a portfolio of programmes to support and develop transformational leadership. I would welcome observations about this... what should we include in any programme? Is it simply inspirational leadership sessions? Is it coaching and mentoring? Is it pre-appointment, post-appointment, induction and on-going support our headteachers need? How do we develop the next generation of headteachers?
Let me know what you think.
