Leadership and School Development

I found the insight, experience and knowledge very helpful indeed…  dynamic and practical approaches to leading a successful department…  Thoroughly worthwhile.
Nicola Nicholl, Head of Middle School and Head of Science, Westminster School

School leaders forge relationships with JMC for many reasons:

  • We can support with appraisal, improvement initiaitives, preparing for inspection, and changes in governance.
  • We can help grow your staff and senior and middle leadership teams through coaching and mentoring.
  • For quick school assesments our structured review and report packages have given leaders the information and guidance they need to push forward in the right direction.

We are here to share our expertise.

Growing, developing and investing in new leaders among in situ teachers has long been accepted as a key to success and schools need a range of options to ensure this important process is effective. The JMC portfolio of courses has been designed to offer flexibility and present peronalised opportunities for leadership development.

The courses below will give you a flavour of what we can offer and you can use our enquiry form to highlight any requirements or ask for further details on any of our courses.

INSET : Building and leading a robust Digital Strategy

School leaders are often not computer experts and do not want jargon and techie-speak when all they need to know is the educational value of different digital tools and approaches. Bringing together school leaders to evaluate their current and desired position, no detailed technical knowledge is necessary, this course aims to demystify the ‘edtech’ world and focusses on the impacts on education, practical leadership strategies and ways to promote a purposeful digital culture across the school.
