The Outstanding Leadership in Education (OLE) is a bespoke coaching based programme written by the author of the nationally recognised suite of OLEVI programmes.
With strong leadership an essential part in the success of organisations, schools and colleges driving forward the quality of teaching and learning, OLE gives delegates the opportunity to explore their own leadership style and build upon their generic skills towards effective leadership.
The programme is a key part of the OLEVI portfolio of school-to-school support, which is helping to increase capacity and drive up standards in all schools. Among many benefits, this programme helps schools to work more effectively as a whole school team and improve their collaboration with other schools and organisations.
The programme is activity based and interactive with theory interjected through the analysis of a professional audit and the completion of a personal action plan. There will be the opportunity for delegates to have access to a mentor/coach, within their school, to move their leadership forward. Many schools have embedded the principles in the student/pupil body when developing young leaders.
The following professional skills will be covered and allow delegates to set personal targets in the following areas:
- Vision and strategic planning
- Effective communication
- Enthusiasm and optimism
- Competence in role
- Managing pressure
- Team building
- Problem solving and decision making
The programme is suitable for many different levels of leadership including senior, middle and those new in role.
The OLE is a six week programme run over twilight sessions of 3 hours each.
