I have been working towards the first Unit if my Scottish Qualification for Headship (SQH) or the Post Graduate Diploma in School Leadership & Management, to give it its full title.
The first unit has been looking at the role of a head teacher and what the Standard of Headship is, as defined by the GTC, then checking where I am in relation to that standard. The Assessment is in the form of a 5000 word essay defining the context, Leadership, change,The Standard and the comparing myself to the standard via 360 feedback from colleagues and self reflection.
I am looking for your help.
Can you, no matter what your role in education (and we ALL have a role in education), answer some questions.
1. What do you see as the role of a Head Teacher/Principal?
2. Define the word 'Leadership'.
So not much ;-)
