Leaders for the Future (L4F)
Become a SSAT approved licensed delivery partner
With a very real crisis of leadership looming, it is essential that the next generation of leaders are identified, retained and developed. These emerging leaders are at the heart of successful, sustainable schools.
Indeed the success of much innovation and renewal relies on teachers leading on small projects that require them to influence colleagues over whom they may not have any formal mechanism to manage. The teachers who are keen to take on these roles are often talent spotted by senior leaders for future leadership roles. For these high potential teachers, their first formal leadership role is often one for which they are under-prepared and a very steep learning curve.
This programme is aimed at teachers with leadership potential who are in the early stages of their career. The focus is on developing leadership skills, knowledge and mind-sets, which can be used immediately to increase their impact beyond their own classroom through influencing others and working on wider projects.
Leaders for the Future content and materials
There are five course modules. Each module is designed as a two hour training session and is ideally delivered as a twilight or modules can be combined over a half/full day. Modules are fully resourced and come with PowerPoint presentations, trainer notes and materials. The module content is not intended as a one size fits all approach and SSAT recognise that no ‘off the shelf’ package will completely meet a school’s needs.
