Inspiring Leadership

Growing, developing and investing in leaders has long been accepted as a key to success and schools need a range of options to ensure this important process is effective. JMC recognise that schools value a choice of different approaches to leadership development so that they can tailor training to the distinct ethos and of the school. The JMC portfolio of courses has been designed to offer flexibility and present peronalised opportunities for leadership development.

Our in-house leadership team training courses provide the spring board for shared, coordinated school development initiatives and can be tailored to provide lead teams with the most relevant guidance on their particular objectives.

Offering a more sustained and personal development experience, our coaching and support packages for existing and aspiring middle and senior school leaders provide the gold standard in 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.
