Applying for a Leadership post?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by TheoGriff, May 14, 2012.

    If you are thinking of applying for a SLT post this term, then you should come to our Moving into Headship or SLT seminar. There is another of these very popular seminars the week after next: Sat 19th May in TES HQ in Holborn, London.
    Not a crowd of people on stackable chairs in a hall, but a very more civilised experience, with a select group round a boardroom table, so that you all feel comfortable about chipping in with a query.
    For further information and to register for the SLT seminar please visit:
    The SLT seminar will have sessions on the application and the interview, showing you how to present your experience and skills in such a way as to show the appointing panel that you are the candidate with the Leadership potential to fill their role as AHT, DHT or HT/Principal.
    The seminar will be led by me, TheoGriff; I am a consultant for Senior Appointments in Schools and Colleges.
    This means that you get to see me. This could be seen as a disadvantage, of course! (But the week before last, 6% of the evaluations judged me Very Good, and 94% Excellent, he reports modestly [​IMG] )
    Recent delegates to the Moving into SLT and Headship seminar have said:

    •Excellent, a really good and worthwhile use of half a Saturday
    •Very useful and informative, good opportunities were allowed to reflect
    •I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, can't wait to put them into practice
    •Extremely useful, great, thanks!
    •Very focussed and practical. Course leaders inspired confidence, lots of practical suggestions.
    •Extremely informative, thank you
    •Brilliant! Very useful and now can focus my attention in the correct way
    •Excellent! Practical exercises useful and interesting.

    People are contacting us to tell us about getting jobs after the seminars:
    •Good news, I managed to secure an Assistant Headteacher post yesterday.
    •I am so glad that I attended the 'Moving into Headship' course - fantastic timing and great advice - got that job!
    •I was at the 'Moving into Headship' seminar and we spoke about my imminent interview. I thought I'd let you know that I was successful! My first interview for Headship, so I'm obviously delighted. The course was very very useful.
    •After attending your course, I applied for two DHT posts. I was invited to interview for both but I only had to attend one interview as I got the first job.
    •I got my first Headship, thank you!
    Dear Theo - I got the job!
    Best wishes to you all - hope to see you there on Saturday!
