Middle Leaders Development
The middle leaders within a school carry a heavy weight on their shoulders. Leading teaching and learning in their own subjects, developing the curriculum, managing individual pupil’s tutoring and pastoral issues, to name but a few.
Being an exceptional teacher is not the only requirement of a Head of Department or Head of Year. Being able to manage teams and lead people is also key. Synergia work with HMC PD to deliver on their Preparing for Senior Leadership, as well as working with individual schools to design, develop and deliver tailored management development programmes. Our leadership training and school management coaching courses for teachers cover the subjects required to offer insight and create expertise in school leadership.
Being able to manage pupils within a classroom can help when becoming a people manager, however understanding adults’ personality, communication preferences and motivation are also key. At Synergia, we offer coaching training for teachers and develop programmes tailored to each school’s specific requirements. For example, at North London Collegiate, we delivered two INSET day sessions around John Adair’s Action Centred Leadership. At Millfield we delivered three INSET day sessions to the SLT, middle leaders and finally aspiring leaders, developing emotional intelligence, understanding motivational theories and team dynamics.
