Are you ready for school leadership?
I’ve been thinking about the essentials of authentic, transformative school leadership; the intricacies, application, and reflective possibilities that are required to lead others.
Stepping into school leadership is not just about a job title or a change in tasks; it’s a profound shift in workload, perspective and whole-school responsibility.
Leadership within a school goes beyond managing staff and students. It requires a teacher to be grounded in the school’s values and be consistent in behaviour, driving both its culture and direction. Effective leadership is paramount in schools, as it directly impacts the entire educational environment and subsequently, student outcomes.
We know that we need more teachers; we need school leaders too. When stepping up, it’s also worth considering what training you will need, and how you will continue to grow.
