How to Achieve Outstanding Foundation Subject Leadership – Sheffield

The new Ofsted framework inspections starting in September 2019 will inspect the effectiveness of subject and middle leaders with more depth and vigour than ever before.

The quality and effectiveness of subject and middle leaders will directly impact on a schools overall grade for leadership and management. In particular, inspectors will look at the ability of subject and middle leaders to improve the quality of education in their subject.  This will include in-depth inspection of how well they lead their subject and improvements, and ultimately what their impact has been in terms of their ability to raise standards for the children.

Senior leaders will also be judged on how well they have developed the role of middle leaders which includes looking at how middle leaders are coached, mentored, trained and supported. This one-day course will combine the very best subject and middle leadership practice with practical Ofsted support.

Course Feedback

Very reflective and useful. This course has completely refreshed my thinking and attitude as a leader! I went back to school with renewed motivation which sadly has been missing for sometime. You truly were inspirational and I cannot thank you enough.
