About this programme:

This programme is designed for headteachers new in post this year in Bristol schools.  We are delighted to be working in partnership with Bristol LA to support this year’s new headteacher induction programme. We have redesigned the programme in light of feedback from heads and have included sessions on governance, managing your own well-being, Ofsted and the new curriculum requirements, improving outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and 3 confidential coaching sessions which can be tailored to your needs.  You will have the opportunity to form a small supportive network with other heads new in post in Bristol.  You will be able to draw upon the expertise from other experienced heads and can be signposted to other services and ways of working through a supportive network of colleagues and Bristol professionals.


Outline of the programme:

3 x confidential and supportive one to one coaching sessions with an experienced leadership coach.  Kris Hancock is an ex-head and Qualified ILM7 Executive Coach who works with a range of school leaders from middle leadership to Executive Headteachers locally, regionally and nationally.
