ConnectEd Partnership’s Programme delivered in partnership with Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) will give you the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to drive successful team performance and improve classroom practice.
Our blended learning model combines practitioner-led and locally delivered face-to-face events with action research, peer-to-peer reflection, online learning and personal tuition.
You will be encouraged to reflect on your own areas of strength, observe ‘good’ and outstanding practice demonstrated by other school leaders, allowing you to evaluate the impact you have as a leader in your own school and identify your key priorities for development.
