Developing Subject Leadership (Sessions 1 & 2)
Date: Wed, 11 May 2022, 13:00 - 16:00
Venue: TBC - NSPCC
This training will give you time to evaluate and develop your leadership skills in leading music within your school. We will cover three main themes.
Music Vision and Policy
You will reflect on your personal leadership and management attributes and how to use them effectively. You will develop a school music vision and be equipped in developing and writing a music policy, ensuring it is up to date with the National Plan for Music and with national key priorities.
Monitoring and Evaluation
You will reflect on an outstanding monitoring and evaluating system, that offers a cycle of continuous improvement. We will also investigate what makes a musical lesson and what good practice in musical assessment looks like. We will form a bank of investigative questions to aid the analysis of the data to inform future practice. Finally, you will reflect on creating a meaningful and achievable action plan for this subject.
Leadership and Management
In this session you will reflect on your learning and development over the time on the Developing Outstanding Subject Leadership in music training. You will evaluate your progress with leadership and management qualities and set further aspirations to continue your journey. We will also have time to tackle some of the issues you are facing and offer supportive advice.
By the end of the session you will be equipped to share your developed music vision and policy with members of staff, SLT and governors. You will be aware of strategies to enable music to be high profile in the school. You will leave the training with personal leadership and
management targets to develop your role of leading music in an effective manner.
You will also have the understanding to implement an informative monitoring and evaluation cycle, carry out reflective lesson observations, support teachers in musical assessment and analyse the music data to offer continued improved practice in school.
Furthermore you will have a better awareness of your preferred leadership style and set personal targets to improve your leading of the subject.
