STUDENT LEADERSHIP TRAINING.
A student leadership training programme for existing or newly appointed student leaders.
Before students are given a student leadership title, role or responsibility, we believe it is essential for them to receive training to ensure they are equipped to lead themselves, their peers and the school community effectively.
The student leadership training programme is divided into three sessions designed to be delivered to the same cohort of students across an academic year.
Session 1: Personal Leadership includes:
- Defining the principle of values-based leadership and supporting students to apply it to their student leadership role
- Helping students discover their personal values and assess the impact on their personal, academic and leadership choices
- Developing students’ public speaking and influencing skills in order to shape culture and develop their confidence in communicating who they are and what they value.
Session 2: People Leadership includes
- Defining the principle of servant leadership and supporting students to apply it to their student leadership role
- Helping students discover their leadership style and assess their strengths and weaknesses within a team
- Developing students’ active listening and teamwork skills in order to work effectively with different leadership styles and in different situations.
Session 3: Practical Leadership includes
- Defining the principle of transformational leadership and supporting students to apply it to their student leadership role
- Helping students align project ideas with wider societal issues
- Developing students’ decision-making and creative skills in order to build a legacy and create projects that last
- Student leaders will be better prepared, responsible and confident
- Teachers and the senior leadership team will be able to delegate tasks with confidence
- Students will show an improvement in their behaviour for learning around the school and actively encourage it in others
