A New Programme for School Support Staff Team Leaders

Enhancing Leadership for the Future (ELF) is a 3 module leadership learning programme designed for individual leaders, in non-teaching roles, who line manage two or more people.

The programme has been designed to explore highly effective leadership within successful teams and the role played by individual leaders in establishing a strong, vibrant professional culture. In a time of relentless change, the only certainty is that new challenges and opportunities will emerge within any organisation. Highly effective leadership, in the future, will demand a mastery of a modern set of leadership behaviours and attitudes.

Programme Aims:

  • Explore 5 key concepts of conscious leadership
  • Consider a set of sustainable competencies of a successful leader
  • Build an inquiry-stance around the characteristics of a strong, vibrant team culture
  • Support participants in creating a vision that inspires members of their team
  • Examine how leaders build capacity within every member of their team

This programme offers the knowledge and skills to enable leaders to create and articulate a vision for increasing capacity for improvement and to design and implement an appropriate strategy for whole team improvement that is focused on maximising success and improved outcomes. It addresses the ‘big picture’ of what contributes to team success and the role played by leaders in optimising cultural conditions that maximise learning through focusing on results.

The programme will take place in live online sessions.

Key areas of learning

1. Clarity Precedes Competence

Key Learning Question – What are my beliefs about leadership and being a successful leader?

We can not be competent or confident in any role without having a clear understand about

the role, itself, and what is needed to achieve success.

  • How do I see myself as a leader and how have my previous experiences helped to shape this view.
  • What values and beliefs do I bring to this role?
  • What type of leader do I want to be?
  • Where am I now with regard to my ‘ideal self’?

2. The Competencies of Success

Key Learning Question – What are the essential competencies needed for success as a leader?

Being successful as a leader requires an individual to master a range of essential competencies

  • How I see the role of leader and what it means to be a successful leader.
  • What are the essential competencies needed to be successful within this role?
  • How is this role changing and evolving?
  • How do I analyse my own performance, as a leader?

3. Leading a high-performing team

Key Learning Question – What is my understanding of the developing nature of the team?

A leader must be clear about their own principles and beliefs for a high-performing team and then set about embedding these principles with those they lead.

  • How I see the team that I lead and it’s future direction.
  • What will shape the future developments of this team?
  • How do we create and sustain a strong and vibrant team culture for future greatness?

Feedback from our 2022 cohort:

Programme was excellent & exceeded my expectations; objectives met & beyond.

Excellent course, Andy was engaging, interesting and wildly enthusiastic. Well worth the time. Thank you very much

Great course, enjoyed the interaction and found everything very helpful Thank you

A positive impact – a chance to implement some of the concepts into everyday work and leading a small team which will in turn impact on our students/young people

By changing the way I think about my role and how I behave/think/learn I will be more confident and be a better leader, which will result in (hopefully) a more confident and competent team, thereby creating a safer, better functioning, and more harmonious work environment.
