Build teacher leaders to enact lasting change within their schools by providing them leadership training to develop solutions
We believe that impactful, sustainable change for any school needs to come from within. Therefore, we work directly with nominated Teacher Leaders to help them tackle an issue that they have identified in their school. We provide this Teacher Leader with one-on-one weekly leadership coaching. We help the teacher address their chosen issue, but also provide them with the skills needed to continue engaging in Teacher Leadership throughout their career. We train each Teacher Leader to lead an Impact Team consisting of a group of their colleagues. Through our support, they work to address their chosen issue and foster a staff culture of empowerment, commitment, trust and collective responsibility.
