    Stepping Into Leadership

    Overview

    This Greater London Authority funded programme aims to equip minority ethnic teachers with the leadership skills, personal confidence and professional networks to make a successful application for promotion. The programme is led by Diana Osagie (CEO, Courageous Leadership) and offers high quality relevant learning for minority ethnic teachers, opportunities to connect with successful, inspiring minority ethnic leaders and access to a local network of minority ethnic leaders that continues beyond the lifetime of the programme.

    Participants attend a two day residential event, hear from a diverse range of successful minority ethnic leaders from within and beyond education, receive support to analyse structured 360 feedback, receive one-to-one coaching with a minority ethnic coach and have the opportunity to shadow minority ethnic headteachers. Session themes delivered across a series of twilights include: vision and values., authenticity in leadership, exploring personal/work motives, leading, managing and empowering others and selling yourself in applications and at interview.

    Race and Education Workshops

    The issue of race and equality has always been a pressing one for London schools, and thanks to funding from the Greater London Authority, London South Teaching School Alliance is able to offer five free workshops for school leaders working within Teaching School Networks, MATS or LAs.

    Each Teaching School, MAT or LA committing to a workshop will need to guarantee 20 senior leader participants and will be required to commit to taking forward the work from the workshop with participating schools, and possibly disseminating their experiences more widely.

    Express an interest in hosting a Race and Education workshop.
