This programme aims to build people’s knowledge, skills and confidence in leading change. It draws on the latest research to provide a range of practical, useful approaches to ensure that change is done with people, not to them, but also to ensure change is effective, meaningful and sustainable.
Course participants will be able to:
- demonstrate an understanding of what change is, how people experience it and the best ways to build readiness for change
- generate momentum for change among individuals, groups and whole organisations
- create effective support structures to guide people through change, however they are experiencing it
- develop coherent structures to sustain change over the long term, including self-review, continuous improvement and an innovative culture
Who is this for
Middle and senior leaders in schools, CoLs, kura and centres. Particularly those who are leading change, about to embark on a change programme or interested in developing their leadership skillset.
20 week course divided into four modules (5 weeks per module).
3-5 professional learning hours per week.
Each 5 week module includes:
- 2 facilitated webinars
- online learning
Module 1: Overview/What is change?
What is change? How do people experience it, and how do we best support people through different stages of change? Also, how do we manage the tension between supporting the status quo while also preparing to move beyond it?
Module 2: Creating momentum
How do we generate momentum for change as part of an ‘unsticking’ process to prepare for change? How can we build readiness for change and build a sense of urgency?
Module 3: Supporting change
What processes generate momentum for change so that participants find it easier to maintain activity aligned with the change initiative? How do we ensure that everyone is supported through the change?
Module 4: Sustaining change
How can we ensure the change initiative doesn’t falter after an initial burst of activity? What are the keys to sustaining and extending change?
