Foreword In this latest ELC brochure you will find both familiar courses and new opportunities for professional and personal development. You can see our mission statement on the page opposite - ‘improving children’s and young people’s lives’ is why ELC exists. That is why we like nothing better than to hear from you individually and to work with your school or children’s centre. Call or email us, at any point. 4

5 This spring and summer of 2010 is a daunting but exciting period for everybody in the sector. We know that things will be changing, but not exactly how. We know that finance is tight and can only get tighter. Where should we place our trust? Ours is a human business. For anybody working with children and young people the quality of colleagues is crucial. We have to trust their judgment, knowledge and practice. In difficult times we

need particularly to retain key staff, improve skills across the workforce and lead potentially unpopular decisions about changing priorities. Because these things are easier said than done, we need trusted partners. The ELC is exactly that. We are a trusted partner not only to the organisations shown opposite, but to the many thousands of individuals we support each year. We train and assess people who are becoming headteachers of

schools, and leaders of children’s centres. We support the leadership and professional development of teachers and children’s centre workers, across all levels of responsibility from early to middle to senior leaders. We are proud to help school administrators, teaching assistants and governors not just to do their jobs more effectively, but to think about that in new and exciting ways. We conduct research for the DCSF, deliver programmes for the National College and TDA and

offer an ever-expanding range of ELC general and specialist courses. Most of all we enjoy working with you and your colleagues. So please, get in touch!

The Eastern Leadership Centre is a not-for-profit charitable business. Our mission is to challenge and support those who can lead the improvement of children’s and young people’s lives.

Grant Bage Chief Executive

ELC was founded in 2003, and grew out of the Faculty of Education at Cambridge University. Our trustees are drawn from schools, children’s centres, LAs, diocesan authorities, universities and businesses. During the last two years, we are proud to have worked with all the partners shown on this page. Contact us and we can collaborate with you.

Leading from the Middle

The National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCO)

Leading from the Middle (LftM) is a 10-month National College professional development programme for middle leaders. This includes subject and pastoral leaders, SENCOs, gifted and talented coordinators, advanced skills teachers and assessment and career coordinators. 10

Who is it for? It is most appropriate for middle leaders with two to seven years experience in a leadership role. The programme is designed for a minimum of two participants per school. Each of these schools will also require a school-based coach to support their participants throughout the programme. The leadership coach should be an experienced school leader. What are the learning outcomes? LftM is designed around the National Standards for Subject Leaders. Outcomes will be: n Enhanced leadership skills within the context of role, school and development needs

n Increased ability to lead innovation and change n A deepened knowledge and understanding of leading learning and teaching n Improved self-confidence and competence as team leaders n Enhanced skills in building team capacity through efficient use of staff and resources What is the content? LftM consists of five local face–toface sessions taking place over a 10 month period (three full days and two ½ day twilights). The full day sessions focus on Self Awareness, Self Development, and Leading and Managing Change. Participants will also have access to on-line

national programmes

materials and tools and the help of their school based leadership coach to support their leadership development. When and where is it? There are two intakes per year, in April and September, and the ELC provides the LftM programme for the 11 Local Authorities in the Eastern region. What is the cost? For maintained schools with more than 100 pupils, the cost is £530 per participant. Schools with 100 or fewer pupils are fully subsidised by the National College.

This is a national award for teachers appointed to a SENCO role. If you are a SENCO in any maintained school or Academy and you were appointed to your role after 1 September 2008 regulations require you to undertake this qualification. How do I apply? Applications are invited from individual schools or existing school networks. Joint applications from individual teachers in neighbouring schools are also welcome. Please call the team at ELC to discuss your options on 01223 499223 or email lftm@elc-cambridge.org Individual teachers without a coach may also like to see details of ELC’s Stepping into Leadership programme on pages 6-7.

Why should I do it? This nationally-approved training is compulsory for SENCOs new to the role and is funded by the TDA. The EAST (Eastern Area SENCO Training) programme is Master’s-accredited and comes from a partnership between ELC, Cambridge Faculty of Education and Essex and Cambridgeshire LAs. It develops and recognises the wide range of knowledge, skills and attributes essential for SENCOs. What are the learning outcomes? By the end of this programme participants will: n understand national policies and regulations and how these

apply to their SENCO role n know how to identify, assess and provide for pupils with special educational needs and/ or disabilities and know how the curriculum can be adapted n understand the principles and practices of managing and leading change n have carried out a development project in their setting linked to school development priorities n apply the principles of schoolbased enquiry, action research and teacher-led development work.

These require ten days attendance at events delivered via regional and local conferences and taught sessions at local venues. Modules 1 and 2 contain problem-solving groups, local supervision and independent, schoolbased enquiry. The independent study unit consists of a reflective commentary. The combined modules will give participants the National SENCO Award and equate to 65 Master’s level credits which can be used as a platform for further study. Assessment is through a range of written and practical tasks.

What is the content? The course is made up of two taught modules and an independent study.

When is it and where? The course began in January 2010 with Cambridgeshire, Essex and

Hertfordshire LAs, and there will be a further intake in September 2010. What is the cost? If you are a SENCO in a maintained school or Academy (including primary, secondary and special), and were appointed to your SENCO role after 1 September 2008, you are likely to be eligible for TDA funding. This covers the EAST course fees and £1500 towards the costs of supply cover. How do I apply?

GOVERNORS

Governors e-Learning School governors in England have responsibility for raising school standards. Their three key roles are setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance. Governors carry out vitally important work which improves the lives of children and young people in our schools, but as they all live busy lives accessing training can be difficult.

28

The ELC GEL online learning tool has been carefully designed to provide Local Authorities with another avenue to reach governors, especially those who would not usually attend face-to-face training events due to other commitments. GEL enables governors and clerks to access training and information from home, work and school – wherever it is convenient for them. Benefits The GEL website helps governors and Local Authority Governor Service Managers by: n ensuring that school governors have access to up-to-date

training and advice np  roviding training, advice and resources to governors whose work or domestic arrangements prevent attendance at face-toface sessions n facilitating governors with the knowledge and tools to ask challenging questions n s upporting governors in meeting their criteria for Ofsted inspections np  roviding information to members of the public considering a governor role ne  nsuring schools are supported by well informed governors.

The content of the site is determined by the GEL Editorial Board, whose members are Governor Services Managers. The editorial board has set up a user group to ensure that all subscribing LAs throughout the UK are able contribute to the development and content of the GEL website. Each learning module contains: n introduction to unit n multiple choice and true/false questions, automatically marked with correct answers displayed n picture based ‘Spot the Issues’ to reinforce previous learning n downloadable documents

n ‘save and return later’ function n end of module evaluation.

‘Some of the governors in Basildon are mums who have not been in paid employment for a while and find it difficult to attend face-to-face training. They used the ICT suite in school to train together and found doing the GEL on-line training “quite relaxed, enjoyable, good to learn at own pace and great for building self-confidence”.’

‘For me GEL is the icing on the cake. It fits nicely with my training programme, ensuring that my governors and clerks have 24 hour access - from anywhere in the world if they wish - to quality training and information to supplement the training delivered locally. Everyone wins with GEL: my governors, and especially their schools.’

Building Effective Teams This one day workshop is designed to help Middle and Senior Leaders rethink their approach to teams. Introduction What does a team look like, and what are the benefits of effective teamwork? Session 1 The Characteristics of Effective Teams We have identified eight key characteristics of effective teams. Why is each one important?

30

Session 2 Team Growth and Maturity It is important to understand the stages in the lifecycle of a team, since a different leadership approach is required at each stage. Lunch Session 3 Team Roles and Personal Styles An effective team displays a well documented set of roles, but we also know that team members often prefer certain roles because of their personal styles.

A team activity helps us to see them in action. Session 4 Team Diagnostic and Planning to Improve Effectiveness This is the time to be honest as we lead you through a diagnostic to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your team, and identify the actions you need to take to improve your team’s effectiveness. We will provide this one day programme in your organisation for £2000, inclusive of all materials and tutor costs, for a group of up to 12 people. Alternatively, we can deliver this at ELC in Cambridge for £250 per person, including a buffet lunch and refreshments.

Leadership Training Brought to Your School We know how expensive it can be to send staff off-site for training. We also know that training in groups reinforces learning . Let us give you the best of both worlds, by bringing our training to your school. We can deliver a large number of courses and bespoke training ‘in house’. Examples include: A four day ‘leadership development package’ for senior and middle leaders across a consortium from nursery to high schools. A half day’s training ‘Improving The Culture for Learning’ across two schools in Birmingham to develop collaborative cultures. A full day’s ‘Effective Teamwork’ training with a whole school staff. A full day’s ‘Dealing With Difficult Situations’, training heads and deputies from several schools.

Typical day courses Managing Conflict. After visiting the principles of influencing others (including voice control, body language and assertiveness) we introduce you to Transactional Analysis as a model to understand individual interactions. We then consider some personality types of ‘difficult people’ to help you to find better ways of working together, using Myers Briggs theory. Personal Organisation. The key to managing complex workloads is being able to manage time, have a systematic approach to prioritising tasks and to handle paper, emails, telephone calls and meetings efficiently. Looking at The Seven Habits of Effective People and Getting Things Done, we help you to improve your personal effectiveness and also your work/life balance.

Heads Up 360° Leadership Diagnostic Research is clear about the importance of leaders and leadership. Effective leadership is differentiated according to context. Leaders are made, not born. Everyone has the ability to develop leadership skills. That is why ELC has developed our exclusive leadership diagnostic. By reviewing leadership research and literature from the public and private sectors, and drawing from our rich experience of leadership development and working with leadership standards for NPQH and other development programmes, we have identified nine commonly recurring leadership domains. These are: n Passionate and purposeful leadership. n Effective communication to secure the commitment of others n Critical self awareness n Creating the climate for success n Empowering and developing others n Personal intellectual capacity n Managing the available resources n Holding people accountable n Relating to the wider community.

Effective leaders continually reflect upon their practice in order to seek improvement. They are committed to excellence and demonstrate the belief that ‘Good enough is not good enough.’ This diagnostic tool is designed to identify your areas of strength, as well as areas you should address. You may then use it to structure your own ongoing professional development. Applying the diagnostic to your own practice is a powerful self-review exercise. By inviting other colleagues to feed in their perceptions of your leadership, you can gain even more powerful feedback about your leadership strengths and areas for development.

Cambridge Leadership spearheads ELC’s International activities, working with teachers, administrators and leaders from North America, Australia, South Africa, Europe and China. In January 2010 our expertise was recognised by the British Council, who selected Cambridge Leadership as one of a small number of approved partners for the British Council China School Leadership Programme. Leadership Development in China In 2009 we were delighted once again to work in partnership with the Guangdong Institute of Education and British Council, for year five of our China UK Leadership Programme. This started with seven days of leadership training for 24 headteachers in Guangzhou in summer 2009. Our training is interactive and experiential, so classroom layout and management changes with each activity. This can be quite a challenge when all administration is via interpreters!

We were delighted to then welcome the headteachers to England. Their programme included three school visits, a five day school placement and cultural visits to London, Cambridge and Oxford. Training content ranged across school selfevaluation, leading learning and teaching, leading teams, personal effectiveness, leadership styles and action planning for school change. All participants undertook schoolbased development and enquiry projects. As a finale we were delighted to hear presentations

about how headteachers plan to lead in their schools as a result of this programme. Middle Leader Development in Egypt El Alsson School is an establishment in Cairo, Egypt. In August 2009 ELC designed and delivered a three-day bespoke package of training for their middle leaders. Together we examined the challenges of middle leadership, how to increase personal effectiveness and practical and theoretical approaches to teamwork.

We look forward to our return visit later in 2010. Contact Us To find out more about Cambridge Leadership please contact Tracy Holland, International Co-ordinator tracy.holland@elc-cambridge.org Clive Minnican, International Director clive.minnican@elc-cambridge.org

Young people are the future of our world. The world they create will depend upon the skills they learn, the attitudes they develop and the qualities they possess. They deserve the best leadership we can manage to give them.
