Leadership Development Programme

Leadership Developement 

What does this service include?

This programme is for new, developing and aspiring leaders in education. There are three key themes: managing yourself, leading the team and leading across the school/MAT. The programme is high impact across 6 days, typically over 2 full-day sessions for 3 months. It focuses on using an effective coaching model to improve self-awareness and develop individual leadership skills. We can customise the programme for our clients.

High-impact leadership is a key element for the success of high-performing individuals and senior leadership teams in schools, academies and MATs. Over and above delivering fantastic teaching and curriculum excellence, our leadership and coaching programme develops the leaders and managers of tomorrow and avoids “team traps” that hinder high performance. This ultimately leads to improving outcomes for young people and the best leaders/managers.

“We recognise the importance of providing the best possible leadership and people support to our clients, as and when needed. From facilitating a strategic leadership programme, resolving complex employee relations, workplace investigations, recruitment, mediation, training and change projects. Birch-HR also provide the tools, advice and guidance in line with the future direction of the organisation and evolving nature of work”.

Samantha Hulson, HR Director & Founder, Birch-HR

“The Multi-academy commissioned Birch-HR to provide a leadership development course for our experienced Headteachers. The quality of topics covered, and materials provided were excellent. The team from Birch created a culture of high expectations delivered within a challenging and thought-provoking framework. Every headteacher within the multi-academy commented on how invaluable the training was and I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to other multi-academies who are seeking to embed high-quality leadership standards within their organisation".

Mr T Leverage M.A (Cantab), CSEL/CEO 

“I just wanted to take a moment to share how incredibly powerful the first 2 days of the Leadership Development from Birch HR were. The pitch and delivery were spot on. The tasks varied, the opportunity as a group of heads to build relationships and feel as one and the possibilities of smarter working as a collective was exciting. I have already taken away a wealth of strategies and techniques that are going to improve my leadership”.

Charlotte Miller, Headteacher, St Mary’s Primary School, Henley in Arden
