Further Information

  • This consultancy workshop can be run for members of one school’s leadership team or for SLT representatives from a network or cluster of schools involved in BLP.
  • To ensure ease of transfer of the ideas into the school, we recommend that at least two SLT members from each school attend.
  • Participants should bring along their school’s vision, CPD policy and current classroom observation schedules.

The depth and challenge of what is involved in building students’ learning power is widely underestimated. It has to be viewed as a slow, sometimes difficult but hugely worthwhile process of culture change in schools and habit change by teachers. This workshop aims to give strategic leaders a guided opportunity to prepare and plan for that worthwhile journey.
