On the 23 November and the 2nd December we ran the first Outstanding Leadership in Education (OLE) cohort, led by our own facilitators Nicci Offer (Okehampton College), Anne Law and Ben Cotton (KEVICCs). Fifteen delegates from across the Alliance took part, representing both primary and secondary leaders. This is a powerful leadership programme, which uses a range of tools and models to stimulate deep self-reflection and generates strong buy-in to the goal of being an outstanding leader. The first evaluation by delegate was overwhelming positive and we will follow up with school-based visits in February.
Here are some quotes from delegates:
"I feel better informed about the characteristics of a strong leader, and so better equipped to become one"
"I already knew my weaknesses but it has brought them to the forefront and I know that I now need to act upon them. The 2 days have given me the confidence, resources to act upon this."
Thank you to the fantastic delegates for their energy and commitment over the two days and a massive thanks to Nicci, Anne and Ben for their excellent facilitation.
