Will you be applying for promotion this year?

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by TheoGriff, Sep 18, 2011.

    Is this the year that you will be applying for promotion in the Senior Leadership Team?
    Start preparing for writing the killer application, so that when your Dream Job is advertised, you can move into action.
    Sign up for one of the Moving into SLT and Headship seminars on Saturday 8th October
    www.tesweekendworkshop56.eventbrite.com
    The seminars 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.
    Two of the three sessions in each seminar are normally led by me, and one by a member of the TES Prime team, who act as consultants for Senior Appointments in Schools and Colleges.
    Recent delegates to the Moving into SLT and Headship seminars 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.
    • 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!
    And here's a happy participant:
    Dear Theo - I got the job!
    I look forward to meeting you.

    Here's an e-mail from another happy attendee, who Moved Into Headship after attending the last seminar:
    Hi Theo,
    Thank you so much. I am absolutely thrilled - and, of course a little apprehensive. I am so glad that I attended the 'Moving into Headship' course - fantastic timing and great advice. I didn't realise quite how close I was to doing exactly what the course title said!

    And one from somebody who got a Deputy Headship:
    I posted off my resignation letter last week. I have been enjoying a relaxing week off. The relief was huge. I can't 'thank you' enough for your expertise and support. I have been telling colleagues past and present about your expertise and skills. I am hoping they will contact you soon.
    Next seminar, October 8th!
