New Heads of Department Training

Dates for 2017/18: Thursday, 30th November 2017 (am), Reigate College and Wednesday, 6th December 2017 (pm), Coulsdon College

The New Heads of Department training runs annually in the Autumn term to address the needs of new and recently appointed Heads of Department in the S7 Colleges. The programme has been running for several years now and is run over two separate half days in order to facilitate some reflection in between.  Delegates will be required to attend both half days.

Written and delivered by experienced Heads of Department in the S7 Colleges, the course gets to grips with some of the critical factors that face a new Head of Department. The topics covered are: working with the departmental team, different approaches to measuring value-added, driving up quality and observing departmental lessons.  There will also be an opportunity between the two days for delegates to reflect on a departmental issue and actions to be taken.

If you are a new Head of Department and interested in attending this course please discuss it with your Staff Development Manager in your college.
