Simon and his team at Agile Schools know how to develop the capabilities that can support leaders to enhance their impact within their unique settings.
These tailored programs are designed to solve specific challenges faced by leaders by giving them new knowledge, skills and tools. During the sessions participants will apply research to practice and be supported to take meaningful action in their role and collect evidence of impact.
Leading Agile Improvement
Changing times call for dynamic leaders and teams, who can create progress in learning despite complexity, ambiguity and resistance. Agile Leadership offers an actionable framework for realising positive impact in your school. These programs are designed for any leader feeling overloaded, who seeks to move from busyness towards creating meaningful progress.
Learning Sprints Programs
Welcome to the future of collaborative teacher learning and expertise development. Learning Sprints is a simple and powerful process to improve the quality and impact of your teacher collaborative time (whether you call them PLCs, TLCs or anything else!). Our programs equip your leaders to understand how to effectively lead this process within your school, in order to develop the expertise and efficacy of your teachers.
High-Impact System Leaders
How can those leading from a regional/ system/ district role have a positive impact on learning outcomes? Leading from a system-level role opens up the potential to have a greater impact by building the capacity of school-level leaders and enabling school improvement trajectories. Yet, the competing demands and priorities can often mean a huge amount of activity without creating meaningful progress. This programs helps leaders to craft their own theory of impact, and then resolutely focus on the highest priority practices in their role.
Instructional Leadership Bootcamp (2-day program)
The core role of a school leader is to lead continuous improvements in teaching and learning. This is the accelerated course for helping your teams get their heads around the key literature and approaches in the field of instructional leadership. It is research-based, fast-paced and intensive. The program is designed to equip senior and middle leaders with the instructional leadership capabilities to improve student learning by ensuring that all teachers are continuing to improve their classroom practice. Drawing on the latest research evidence and practices from high performing leaders and schools, participants will learn practical approaches for creating continuous improvement in teaching and learning.
Custom Capability Development
Sometimes you just need to co-design your own program from the ground up. If you are leading specific school or system reform, or facing a specific challenge, you will need context-specific leadership development. With a strong foundation in adult learning, leadership development and organisational change, we can work with you through the research, co-design and delivery of your custom programs.
