Women Without Limits: Leadership Essentials for New and Aspiring Senior Women Leaders
Are you a woman who dares to lead? Are you willing to walk the 'hard yards' but lead your people well? Are you willing to be vulnerable in taking the right risks for children and young people even if you walk alone? Do you believe in 'if not you, then who'? Does that all sound massively exciting and a little bit frightening? Then this is the course for you! This women-only leadership cohort will explore what it means to be a great female leader. You’ll learn about and challenge thinking around what outstanding leadership is, the role of personality style and the art of creating incredible people and inspiring cultures. Participants will have the opportunity to learn key coaching skills and tools for honest and, sometimes, difficult conversations as well as exploring some of the challenges women in leadership face in terms of balancing well-being, home responsibilities and career. This is a place to network with other similar inspirational women leaders. Participants have the option of purchasing an MBTI® personality report for £100 which will complement session two. Participants interested in this course should come prepared to share openly and honestly about their vision, leadership strengths, next steps and real-life experiences with this highly trusting and confidential group.

Training for Scribes, Readers and Transcript, Support in Administrating Statutory Tests
In 2017 there were 599 maladministration investigations. 26.2% were self-reported by schools. The most common allegation type in 2017 was regarding test administrators overaiding pupils during the key stage one and key stage two tests. It is the head teacher’s duty to ensure that all teachers and other staff are fully trained and comply with the relevant documentation published by the STA. During the session, trainers will cover the do’s and don’ts of supporting a child either as a reader, scribe or prompter. The delegate will have a clear understanding of how to keep the integrity of the tests and support a child in GPS, reading, and mathematics papers during both key stage one and key stage two assessments.
