We have been implementing the survey for the past 3 years at Hornby. The survey provides us with valuable insight into how our pupils view themselves as learners and how staff and the wider community contribute to positive learning outcomes.
Posted by Ms Hunt Introducing my other half Following on the twenty year theme, my husband and I are unusual in that we have both been in the same professions for our entire working lives.
Once upon a time, our salaries were even comparable. I find it fascinating that our very different professional worlds he gets bonuses and paid social events are using more and more of the same language and thinking.
Never mind leadership, get on with your job.
Summary of the article The article suggests that sending staff on leadership training is a waste of time, as there will only ever be a limited number of leadership positions. The researcher quoted also said that more industry recognition should go to followers than leaders.
Leadership in schools One of the special characteristics of schools is the range of groups we are involved with. I am in two small curriculum groups, within one larger faculty, a PLG, a committee, a working group, a mentoring group, and a whole staff group. All of these groups have different leaders, and my role in each is different, from unchallenging follower, to active participant, to expert, to transformational leader I hope!
The recognition of alternative career pathways, particularly through the IES, could change this practice. I admire the skills of people who can see a process through, sort out the details, who you can rely on to just get on and do it. I think any big-picture thinker would agree.
A team needs all sorts of skills, thinking habits and work habits to get on, never mind to grow, develop and innovate. Education has so many teams, pathways, and directions available that I believe there is still potential for many, many leaders.
I agree that there are good leaders and bad leaders, and that leadership training is not yet available for all when it is needed.
I also agree that teams need all sorts of skills. While I believe that some of the followship traits of discipline and attention to detail are key skills for our students, I would also argue that leaders need these traits too.
Can you imagine working in a team where the leader had none of these? Less hierarchical structures, and a mindset that encourages multiple values are the way forward.Use of e-asTTle is voluntary, with about half of all schools in New Zealand currently using e-asTTle on a regular basis.
