Code: SGC/20/296 Inspiring Leadership (cf)

This course is aimed at:
· Experienced leaders wishing to refresh their skills or with identified gaps in their learning.
· Those in middle management positions (such as deputies and room leaders).
· New leaders who wish to develop their skills.
· Childminders with assistants.
· Aspiring leaders.

This 4-part course will provide an opportunity to explore and discover a pedagogical approach within your setting. Through reflection on your setting vision, values and ethos we aim to refresh your outlook on the skills required to lead and nurture a team. We will consider:
- the fundamental differences between leading and managing
- getting the best from your team, and -
fostering confidence to lead an early years’ curriculum which includes and respects all children’s right to play and learn.

You will be invited and supported to lead improvement through a range of reflective tasks which will have a lasting impact on staff, children and families. A visit will be offered to all delegates to provide tailored support with embedding their knowledge into practice.

“Challenging people in the right way. Leading not managing, supporting them by giving them both a platform they can count on and expectations they can stretch for.” (Seth Goslin)
