Management Training

2015/2016 Training Programme

We focus training for schools:

  • on topical personnel issues delivered either in-school or at a suitable local venue
  • in a way which best suits the needs of the school - this could be through INSET, cluster of schools, etc
  • at a time which is convenient to the school - for example, during the school day or in twilight sessions
  • on a workshop basis with opportunities for interaction

Training is provided by experienced Education Personnel specialists and is relevant to the needs of schools. It is aimed at improving both individual and whole school effectiveness. It is workshop-based with tutor input and provides an opportunity for interaction and sharing of the issues facing schools. Example topics for delivery are set below.

  • Managing Staff Reductions
  • Managing Staff Absence - long/short term
  • Performance management for team leaders
  • Investigating capability and conduct issues
  • Personnel management for school leaders and administrative officers
  • Developing management skills including assertion and conflict management
  • Introducing performance management for support staff - team leaders and employees
  • Safer recruitment
  • Managing NQT induction for induction tutors

The list of topics is illustrative and schools can commission individualised training from Education Personnel in specific areas relevant to their needs. This is subject to the availability of an EPS consultant to deliver the activity. Charges for this training reflect course preparation, delivery time and associated costs. Costs are agreed in advance of the training being provided. In the event of non-attendance at a workshop or cancellation of a commissioned course, please refer to our cancellation policy.
