What makes an effective middle leader?

This summer, teachers around the country will be preparing to step into new roles. Many will be taking their first step into management as Heads of Department, a role that is often overlooked and which is generally under-researched. Yet as James Toop, Chief Executive of the charity Teaching Leaders argues, ‘no school can be a great school without getting middle leadership right’. So what does it mean to be a great middle leader? That’s what this report, co-authored with Meena Parameshwaran, Loic Menzies and Charleen Chiong on behalf of LKMco, and commissioned by Teaching Leaders, sets out to explore.

You can download the full report here. The report also received coverage in Schools Week and the TES.
