We hope that, as a result of working through some of the Key Elements you will have identified some specific areas you wish to work on and maybe made a start on developing some new approaches, policies and practices with your team.

This section offers a different way of thinking about the role of the subject leader and goes beyond specific elements to look at a collection of broader core responsibilities:

In each of these sub-sections you will find:

  • a set of focused ‘best-fit’ example statements which allow you to locate your own practice
  • a set of ‘moving to the next level’ questions to support you in developing your current practice
  • a collection of ‘Stories of change’ from subject leaders around the country to give you an insight into how other SLs have made the change from one category to another
  • a final section for you to document your own next steps.

I found an excellent downloadable faculty handbook somewhere on here, does anyone know where this is? I have been looking for about an hour and can't find it anywhere, thanks in advance.
