The focus of the OTSA Middle Leader Programme is to identify and consolidate knowledge and understanding about leadership and management to achieve high quality teaching and learning and thereby close the gaps in pupil achievement in our schools.
The programme is designed for middle leaders who have responsibility for leading subjects, key phases, pastoral responsibilities or other aspects of the schools work. It is suitable for middle leaders in every educational context including early years environments, primary schools, special schools through to large faculties in secondary schools.
This exciting programme, is centred on resources developed by Professor John West-Burnham, writer of the original NCTL Middle Leader Development Programme (MLDP), in partnership with programme facilitators.
The OTSA Middle Leader Programme includes 8 modules which will be facilitated by OTSA partner schools in local clusters across the region.
Programme participants will attend a series of virtual events over a period of 9 to 12 months where they will work with colleagues to deepen their knowledge and understanding of highly effective leadership.
Participants will work on an authentic leadership project which responds to a genuine school need and makes a direct contribution to school improvement.
Schools will need to support participants during the programme through providing a senior colleague to act as a mentor and coach to offer guidance, challenge and, where appropriate, advocacy.
Participants will be expected to complete inter-sessional tasks, and to attend ALL of the online twilight sessions. Successful completion of the programme, which includes a presentation to the school leadership team, will be recognised through the award of an OTSA Middle Leadership Programme certificate.
