We offer an exciting and varied programme for leaders in East Lothian. All of our leadership activities can be linked into the Standard for Headship
We hope that this will support all of our leaders in their journey.
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, do more and become more, you are a leader”
John Quincy Adams
Ambitious Excellent Schools recognised that excellent schools are driven by high quality leadership, and that inspirational leaders make a lasting difference to staff, young people and communities. Strengthening our leadership capacity across East Lothian remains a priority.
Leadership is not just about one person leading from the front – there are lots of ways to develop your leadership skills and knowledge through a distributed leadership model. This is about sharing leadership across the school or department.
Why look at a distributed model?
- Belief in the power of one gives way to a belief in the power of everyone
- As schools and the dept become more complex places to manage and lead, we need many more leaders than ever before
- Ensuring that there are many leaders enables us to create pools of talent, from which we can grow tomorrows leaders
Within schools we are often referring to learning-centred leadership. We should create and develop many leaders who influence and improve the quality of learning and teaching
