Workshops

the-learning-crowd was delighted to be asked to run one day workshop with twenty plus Governors and Senior Leaders for a new school scheme recently. For many this was the start of their journey to try and understand what their vision was, what they wanted to be able to do and how that may change in the future.

It is always great when you give senior leaders (teaching and non teaching) dedicated time to reflect on  practice and consider the future.  Really focused thinking, discussion and optimism emerges in every conversation.  People at coffee, lunch and at the end of a very full day were energised and buzzing about the future.  If only every one could still do this in an every growing time of change.  

It was a very busy and active day, but with quite a lot of laughter as well.  The feedback was brilliant and set the right tone for expanding people's ideas and thinking.

It will be no surprise that no one liked the suggested 'cookie-cutter' or model schemes being suggested by some bodies!

This is going to be a very exciting and challenging scheme..... we're looking forward to working with them on the next stages.
