Brought to you live from the National College’s Seizing Success 2012: Annual Leadership Conference, this online seminar will give the opportunity to enjoy and participate in an online version of one the conference’s workshops, from the comfort of your desk or home.
Against a background of declining capacity in local authorities (LAs) and the move towards a self-improving school led system, this online seminar will draw on three case studies to explore how Hartlepool has used a number of approaches to build leadership capacity.
Led by John Hardy, Headteacher of St John Vianney Primary School, this seminar will examine how Hartlepool, currently the 24th most deprived local authority in England and Wales, achieved the seventh most improved pupil attainment in 2011.
Practical examples will include: the development of a teaching schools alliance that contains 90 per cent of local authority schools, all cross-phase, with the LA as a strategic partner and an LA officer seconded as project manager; and a formal collaboration of headteachers who have formed a limited company to deliver services. By sharing their journey you’ll have the opportunity to form tangible ideas that can be transferred to your own setting.
