J. The Habits of a Professional School

Course Leader: Michael Wright

Aimed at: Senior leaders & governors

The management of a well-run school is comprised of many elements, from delivering high-quality lessons and meeting statutory regulations, to presenting itself as a competent educational facility and maintaining a positive appearance among the school community and beyond.

It is therefore critical the school develops a culture of professionalism within the staff and leadership and carries it through at all levels, setting an example to the young people who walk through its doors every day and instilling confidence in parents and others who work with its school.

To achieve this, the school leadership must develop and implement a professional philosophy to ensure sustained results and gain positive feedback from those they serve.

This workshop will provide examples on the culture leaders should nurture within their school to:

  • Maximise their potential in providing an excellent service
  • Present the school as a professional, high-quality institution.

This workshop is aimed at

  • New leaders
  • Leaders of newly-registered schools
  • Leaders wishing to take the next step up.

Dr Michael Wright is currently the Principal at the Iqra Academy, Peterborough. He was previously the Vice Dean at Lincoln College International in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where he was responsible for the strategic Leadership and executive management, in setting up a cluster of three brand new Colleges of Excellence. He has managed Teacher Training departments as Assistant Principal in two FE Colleges in the UK and was part of an Education inspection team, which shared good practice with schools and colleges across the UK, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and Greece.

Michael is a former British Police Detective and holds a PhD in Law, a Level 5 qualification in Operational Management and a Master’s Degree in Leadership through the University of Hertfordshire.

T. Building Partnerships to Benefit your School

Course Leader: Michael Wright

Aimed at: Senior leaders & governors

Successful schools are those who can wisely develop their network and maximise the resources at their fingertips. Leaders who have established their school within local forums and set up partnerships increase their chances of success and open the doors to all kinds of possibilities.

It is important to recognise areas within the school which could do with additional support and to follow this up by identifying opportunities which can fulfil their requirements and hopefully create new opportunities in the future.

Alternatively, leaders may choose to see what is out there and see what benefits can be gained by introducing new initiatives in their school.

This workshop aims to assist leaders by explaining how to:

  • Identify areas for development within the school which can be supported via partnerships
  • Establish links with partners
  • Maintain relationship with partners and make the most of them

This workshop is aimed at

  • New leaders
  • Leaders of newly-registered schools
  • Leaders looking for additional support
  • Leaders who want to broaden the range of initiatives at their school
