Leadership Lite

Leadership Lite Cohort 2 - for Autumn 2021 - NOW RECRUITING!

A school improvement model to support teacher retention in science. The project works with Governors, senior and middle leaders and teachers to improve the provision in science through quality assurance, marking and feedback and classroom practice.

Leadership ‘Lite’ involves evidence based approaches to support teacher improvement, reduce workload by around 1/3, encourage quick wins (but not at the expense of long term gains) and is less invasive that other models supporting teacher retention.

The programme lasts 2 years and schools will receive training and support through local clusters in the North East. Senior and governors will receive half day training (typically twilight sessions to minimise out of school). Middle leaders will receive 3 full days of training over the first year followed by network meetings. Support for classroom practice with teachers and teaching assistants takes place in school and around the normal working day with twilight training for whole department training sessions.
