Code: STN/20/271/S Moving into Sixth-Form leadership

The programme has been formulated by successful and experienced senior leaders from the education sector, and designed for recently appointed heads of Sixth Form who are aspiring to excellence.

Delegates will hear insights from Steve Oakes (researcher, author, associate lecturer in Psychology at MMU) about the VESPA mindset practice.

Developed by 2 teachers with over 40 years’ combined teaching experience, VESPA draws extensively on academic research and classroom experience to develop a system that supports student learning, helping every learner become the best they can be.

In addition to understanding the key leadership skills required to evaluate your Sixth-Form and hold your staff to account, the session will provide an opportunity to devise a development plan which will deliver real and noticeable improvements within school through a focus on the HfL Good Schools Framework.


This programme is for: current heads of Sixth-Form, aspiring/designate Heads of Sixth-Form, and other interested staff.
