A programme in three sprints that supercharges your growth as a middle leader. 

In a time of crisis, leaders throughout a system need to have a common language. In Leading from the Middle, learn how to build relationships as a peer leader, inspire collaboration and scale up your team's ideas from one to some to everyone

As schools try to delegate more, without overwhelming staff, this course will help middle and aspiring leaders develop the space, efficacy and attitude to take on the responsibility.
