Alban Education in collaboration with Debbie Shirley, from Flourish with Debbie, is delighted to offer a new six session programme of coaching support for SENCo’s and their teams. The programme is designed to enable SENCos to reflect and build on their leadership skills, manage workload and the unique pressures that the role attracts.
Your bespoke programme can start on a date that suits you and will run for 12 months following commencement.
Six sessions in total with the first three sessions being one-to-one coaching sessions focusing on the SENCo lead role, deepening their knowledge of their values and leadership skills and building a strong vision for their team. Then a further 3 group sessions including the wider inclusion team are developed, to enable the sharing of that vision and enabling capacity to grow within the team.
The unique aspect of this support is that a bespoke and thoughtful programme of coaching can be built to meet the school’s leadership needs. The programme is suitable for Primary and Secondary settings.
The sessions can be held half termly to maximise impact over the academic year.
What are the objectives or outcomes?
- Are you a new SENCo or are you managing a new team?
- Are you an experienced SENCo whose role is adapting to changes in demands?
- Are the external pressures of specialist provision and outreach, changing the way in which you work?
- Do others understand your changing role?
This programme of coaching will enable you to reflect on your leadership role within school, how this is communicated to others, and how you manage others within your team to support your overall vision.
Who is this course for?
For colleagues new to SENCo role
