The Successful Integration of Challenging Pupils

Leadership
Challenging pupils sap the morale of teachers and stretch schools resources, as well as undermining the learning opportunities of their peers. Traditional strategies have often been negative and reactive, and lead towards greater disenchantment and disengagement from the education system. However, all children do matter, and very dificult pupils can become highly successful if sound behaviour management techniques are employed.

Time Management for Heads of Department and Team Leaders

Leadership
Your role is crucial in the managing of teaching and learning in your establishment, yet with the overwhelming pressure of daily demands from all directions, you may well feel that you just do not have enough time to do your job effectively. Of course there are never enough hours in the day for you to achieve all that you want, but you can learn some skills, strategies and techniques to help you make the most effective and the most professional use of the time that you have.

Timetabling - A Three Day Course

Leadership
This practical three day course is aimed at delegates who have little or no experience of the timetabling process. It will be suitable for delegates who may be shadowing the timetabler in their school - as well as those wishing to become timetablers in the future. Course members will work through the techniques needed to move from the curriculum plan to a finished timetable - and examine a range of effective computer and traditional based tools to help you do so.

Transforming Learning & Teaching through Staff Peer Coaching & Feedback

Leadership
Very few people are trained to coach or give feedback so they tend to worry about these aspects of their role and 'muddle along' doing their best.

This jam-packed training day will help you to become a more confident, competent and effective classroom coach who is able to make real impact. Instantly, feedback becomes a higher quality, more positive and constructive experience for your staff and they'll feel empowered, motivated and able to make sustainable changes that will enable you to transform teaching & learning - fast!

Understanding and Responding to the Equality and Diversity Requirements of the Common Inspection Framework 2009 and the Evaluation Schedule for Schools

Leadership
Both the Equality of Opportunity and Equality and Diversity Requirements of the Evaluation Schedule for Schools and the Common Inspection Framework 2009 respectively are now limiting grades, which affect the 'Overall Effectiveness' grade for an institution. Therefore, an 'inadequate' grade for either Equality of Opportunity or Equality and Diversity are likely to result in an overall grade for the institution of 'inadequate'.

Understanding Your School Budget

Leadership
This course offers an explanation of how education funding is allocated by government to LEAs, how LEAs allocate resources to schools, the various funding streams available - and how schools can make the most effective use of those resources. It will cover the Section 52 budget statement, the ISB, the Standards Fund and Capital funding - as well as a synopsis of the planned changes in funding and budgeting currently under consideration. It will also cover improvements that can be made to schools' internal procedures to help you maximise the utilisation of resources at your school or college.

Widen Your Mind as Well as Your Doors

Leadership
This course will focus on supporting practitioners and professionals in making their Disbility Discrimination policy accessible. The session will focus on what we are aiming to achieve and how we can accomplish it. Practical solutions and advice will be provided with a focus on meeting needs and will examine the factors to be considered when considering 'reasonable adjustments'.

Writing and Implementing an Effective Improvement Plan

Leadership
This course will enable participants to clarify their own school or college's developmental priorities, using tried and tested diagnostic methods grounded in theory and practice.

Participants will explore effective strategies to ensure that plans are focused on clear measurable and time specific outcomes; and that a wide range of stakeholders has ownership the plan.

Your School, Your Students & Diversity Law

Leadership
New diversity legislation (SENDA, amended SENDA and Disability Equality Duty) has grave implications for non-compliance, including huge fines and poor inspection grades. This course will explain what schools need to know and do about the legislation and to put in place a structure of policy and training so you stay within the law and your pupils can fulfil their potential. Knowing the implication of the most common neuro-diverse conditions will inform your behaviour management schemes and increase understanding, tolerance and relationships between staff, pupils and management.

Your Successful ISI Inspection

Leadership
ISI inspections are rooted in the principle of peer review to support holistic school development and improvement. This course addresses the structure of Second Cycle inspections, introduced in September 2005, making clear where the changes lie. It traces the steps that need to be taken to ensure that the evidence base that the school provides for the inspectors is accurate, thorough and readily accessible.
