Leading in a Complex Setting: Teaching in a Special School

Classroom teaching in mainstream settings is usually a one-person show, or if you’re fortunate you may also have a TA. Teaching in a special school (or provision within mainstream) often means you have a team of three or more other adults to lead.

  • How to get the best from each individual
  • Leading with compassion consistency and cohesion
  • How great communication supports classroom teams
  • Collaboration and skills reviews to support every pupil

About this course

Leading, as a teacher, in a classroom with a team of adults is definitely challenging.  When we train to teach, we learn to master our own space.  With a team of four or more adults, we must consider skills, personal journeys and experiences, how to get the best for every pupil in our class – and how to stay together as a team in what can be very trying circumstances – albeit very rewarding ones.

This training will:

  • Give teachers a deeper understanding of how to get the best from every team member.
  • Look at the skills required to lead a team.
  • Help you develop communication methods that challenge, support and ultimately benefit your pupils.
  • Provide you with a range of practical leadership activities to take to your setting – skills reviews, collaboration techniques, monitoring that develops, supporting good teaching from all adults.
  • Enable your class to continue its journey towards excellence.

 

Audience:

  • Special school middle leaders
  • Special school class teachers
