Reflecting on the current policy context, stakeholders’ expectations and the skills required by senior leaders, AoC Create has tailored the Senior Leadership Management Development programme for this cohort to ensure it remains relevant and meets the current and evolving development needs of leaders in the FE sector. This refreshed programme is about improving leadership in practice.

The programme aims to challenge and change behaviours, develop the personal qualities, leadership skills and high level management capability of senior leaders in the further education and skills sector, achieved through practical application of the learning to the workplace. Our facilitators will guide you through tools and techniques to apply to your own situations and challenges and equip you with the knowledge and skills to know ‘how to’ be a successful leader.

Additional strengths include speakers and case studies from FE and the wider education sector, commercial sector and voluntary and community organisations.  You will have opportunities to listen, to question, to discuss issues with peers and tutors, to receive feedback and to put your learning into practice.

Cohort 13 Dates

3 – 4 October 2017 – Module 3: Leading Transformational Change

The main benefits will include:

  • enhanced skills and knowledge required by senior leaders to lead complex education and training organisations
  • improved understanding to empower and engage employees to enhance performance and increase productivity
  • increased resilience and personal confidence to lead effectively through transformational change
  • supported personal development to progress in the workplace

The programme consists of three core two-day residential modules with further support between modules through individual and group coaching. There is flexibility to undertake the full programme or individual modules to meet personal needs. If you are taking the full programme then it is recommended that module one is taken first, followed by two and then three. Full details of each module can be found by clicking on the Programme tab above.

There is no formal assessment. However, there will be pre-reading and/or tasks for you to complete ahead of the modules and follow-up work based on reflection, personal development, action planning and application of learning from the modules.  Individual tutorial support is included to maximise the learning opportunities and their practical implementation. Some of the modules benefit from speaker sessions from highly experienced leaders from a range of backgrounds, bringing external perspectives that reflect contemporary practice and explore the all-important angle of how to apply the learning to the workplace.

Tutoring

Between each residential delivery of the modules, you will be guided with your personal development, through structured action plans and career coaching:

  • you will develop and submit action plans to your coach for review and progression
  • coaches will monitor progress and review impact on a 1:1 or small group basis
  • you will be encouraged to meet together in a tutor-led ‘learning set’ to share experiences and help each other with problem solving

Who should attend?

This programme is designed for senior managers and leaders working in the further education and skills sector who wish to improve management and leadership effectiveness in their current senior role or who aspire to move on to the next level. Applicants should be able to demonstrate significant experience in people management, resource and financial/budgetary responsibility.
