Book Description

The role of a subject leader is one of the most important in any school, second only to that of the head teacher. Subject leaders are working in the ‘engine room’ of school life, expected to turn the vision, values and ethos of a school into reality.However, most teachers went into education because they wanted to be teachers, not leaders, so they often haven’t had any training into how to lead a subject area.This book seeks to deliver a whole range of practical solutions to the challenges that the role presents. The areas covered range from setting and communicating your vision, delivering high quality learning across all classes and developing rigorous and effective systems of self evaluation to understanding and developing a transformational leadership style.Hugely accessible and realistic, the book also tackles some of the other critical issues that sometimes face subject leaders. Practical solutions are offered around the issues of working with underperforming colleagues as well as managing the stresses of the role.


Product Description

Review

If you are already a subject leader then you will find much to celebrate in this book as you reflect on what you are doing well and what you relish about your job, you will also find yourself challenged and equipped to be better at what you do. If you are just about to embark on this role then this could be the book that makes your new job possible; there are some excellent ideas that will help you to start your team thinking along the right lines from the very first. If you are an aspiring subject leader there is a wealth of experience here that you will find inspiring and that will affirm your choice. From very practical suggestions about how to run team meetings, how to recognise and use the right leadership style and how to manage stress to the more fundamental issues about your own philosophy of education and the emotionally intelligent way to work with a team. --Geraint Wilton, Lead Practitioner, St Ives School A Technology College

.....contains principles and advice to ensure you focus on the things that matter and just give a cursory nod to the things that don't. If your subject department was run along the lines Steve Garnett sets out, amongst other things your pupil targets would be more meaningful, staff meetings would contain less waffle and your department would be a place both teachers and pupils would want to be. If you put into practice the methodology of The Subject Leader, you can lead effectively as opposed to doing what we so often do muddle through. --Paul Wrangles, illustrator, author www.sparkyteaching.com

2.0 out of 5 stars quite limited in scope 10 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A few ideas for new heads of department possibly but not a book I could strongly recommend. Earnest rather than strong on development.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful if you're new to the role 22 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are a few interesting ideas in this book. If you are new to the role of Subject Leader, your will probably find a lot that is useful and interesting. If you've been doing the job for a while, it's not so useful.
