DRAGONFLY TRAINING/ECIS MIDDLE LEADER AWARD
TIMINGS ARE U.K.
Teacher leaders are crucial partners in facilitating school change that has a direct and meaningful impact on student learning. The Middle Leader Award provides a virtual taster of the established the Middle Leader Certificate programme which translates quality research around teacher leadership into a credible professional pathway. The programme identifies and nurtures the skills and behaviours needed to be an effective teacher leader who influences their school community.
Through our programme, Middle Leaders develop their skills and deepen their knowledge to become effective catalysts of school-wide change. Our courses are rigorous, and are mapped to the standards for professional learning from Learning Forward, as well as leadership behaviours and attitudes promoted by the Department for Education in the United Kingdom.
Each module provides an award certificate on completion.

TEACHER QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
This module will consider the importance of creating a shared understanding and a consistency in delivery of high-quality learning and teaching amongst all members of your department, in other words sharing the ‘what’ and the ‘how’.
ASSESSMENT & LEADERSHIP
Effective middle leaders are clear about where the evidence has come from to inform them about areas of progress or concern. This ability to be ‘data literate’ is crucial. It’s important to know where to look and what to look for.
BUILDING & LEADING TEAMS
Middle leaders are often challenged with the question of how they support colleagues who appear to be underperforming relative to others in their department. This is never an easy one to answer as context is everything.
DEVELOPING YOUR LEADERSHIP STYLE
Leadership and management often appear as interchangeable terms, but it is crucial to recognise that there is a difference and being effective at both is crucial to effective running of a department or team.
CUTTING EDGE PEDAGOGY
Designing a model to effectively review and evaluate the curriculum effectively is also required of an effective middle leader. We will demonstrate what this looks like and explain how you can show that effective review can positively impact on processes and outcomes.

CULTURE OF LEADERSHIP
Middle Leaders are often described as operating in the ‘engine room’ of the school ensuring everything runs smoothly. This module will set some context as to why this is such a crucial role in the effective running of a school, and share what the research says about the most effective middle leadership.
