Understanding your leadership journey as a women and NQT

This programme aims to give women NQTs a greater awareness of the journey into leadership, offering case studies of where this journey has been successful. Candidates will gain confidence to take on `small` leadership roles within their school & will reflect on what it means to be a leader.

Although women make up approximately 77% of teachers only around 67% of headteachers are women.  When our female trainees are recommended QTS they out perform their male peers, including in Teaching Standards that show leadership.  We will work to develop the NQTs’ confidence in developing these leadership skills, giving the NQTs the opportunity to continue grow in their practice in this area.

The aim of the programme is to give woman NQTs a greater awareness of the journey into leadership and will offer examples and case studies of where this journey has been successful. Candidates will gain the confidence to take on ‘small’ leadership roles within their school and be able to reflect on what it means to be a leader both within their classroom and school.

Our expected outcome is that the NQTs will have an increased confidence in their ability, as leaders in the classroom, potential school leaders and will have gained the confidence to lead an aspect of Teaching and Learning within their school, such as leadership of a Foundation subject.

Structure and Content:

We will run two workshops for the successful applicants, one in the Spring Term and one in the Summer Term.

We will look at all the different aspects of leadership including communication skills, leadership development, and emotional intelligence, and how to ensure that the NQTs are developing these skills whilst completing their first year of teaching.

We will offer coaching on leadership for ten woman NQTs from BME heritage.  This would complement the mentors who already support the NQT journey in school, as we believe it is never too early to start this journey.  Our coaches would model and support this development, we would match the coaches to the needs of trainees. NQTs would have the opportunity to sign up for the coaching, following the first workshop.

Workshop 1 - Tuesday 26th February 2019 4.00 to 5.30 at Lapage Primary School 

Workshop 2 Tuesday 30th April 2019 4.00 to 5.30 at Lapage Primary School

 

Dates for the coaching will be arranged by the coaches and NQTs.

  • Be an NQT in a West Yorkshire or Lancashire school

Fully funded by the DfE Leadership Equality and Diversity Fund (L &WY)
