IOE Leadership Development with Future Zone
We at the IOE are proud of our engagement with the Future Zone group of schools. This is my third year to be involved, starting with the Middle Leaders’ programme in 2016-17, adding the Stepping up to Senior Leadership programme last year, and now also facilitating the Early Career Development programme.
On all of our programmes we seek to connect messages from educational research and policy with the realities of classrooms and schools. We recognise that schools are complex, uncertain environments but that strong, values-led leadership is a common feature of all successful schools and systems. And we know, from the huge variety of development projects that Future Zone leaders have completed – from embedding P4C into the curriculum to devising strategies to improve literacy and numeracy – that participants on our programmes are having a substantial impact on the learning of their pupils and the development of their colleagues.
