Even experienced education leaders find the development and mentoring offered by the Hearth as practical, reflective and enhancing.
The Hearth Education Advisors believes that leadership, both at Head of School level as well as in the broader senior management team, is critical to the success of the institution. Leadership can make a tremendous impact, positively or negatively, on the effectiveness of teaching and other professionals in the school.
The Hearth offers leadership development at three levels of engagement for Governors of schools, Heads, prospective Heads and Senior Management Team members.
- Leadership Development Workshops: These are carefully designed professional development programmes, where experienced Heads of Schools have found themselves reflective on their practice as a consequence of participation in such a workshop.
- Year-long Directed Learning Programme: The Hearth has designed a 120-hour programme, which is expected to be completed in a year. This includes two face-to-face sessions, an optional offsite workshop with fellow professionals, and directed learning and mentoring through the year.
- Leadership Coach: On a highly selective basis, the Hearth offers individual coach/mentor services to school leaders. These are bespoke and entirely customised to the needs of the individual.
