The Co-Curricular Assistant Head in Independent Schools

This is a new seminar, which is intended to support newly appointed Co-Curricular Deputy or Assistant Heads – or those aspiring to these positions.  These are relatively new roles in schools, and priorities and operating processes are often not yet firmly established.  The course will look at the aims of the position, and the methods by which these can be pursued, and quality controlled,  across the whole school.  Frequently encountered frustrations and challenges will also be considered, along the various communication mechanisms and people management skills that are crucial to success.
