Leading for Excellence in Science
13-16 November 2016 & 12-13 March 2017
Develop your leadership and management skills to develop a constantly improving department or faculty
Curriculum for Excellence aims to bring about transformational change and en-sure the best possible education for our children and young people. The Scottish Government recognises the pivotal role of science within CfE. Management structures in schools and colleges are diverse resulting in posts of responsibility for science faculties and combinations of science subjects as well as principal teachers of biology, chemistry and physics. As a consequence of these factors and the increasing emphasis on the need for teachers to take increased responsibility for what they teach and their own self evaluation, the role of science leaders has never been more important.
This course is aimed at all of those who have, or aspire to have, responsibility for leading science education in their establishments.
Although some leadership skills are generic, there are aspects of science education which require specific leadership skills and have particular management responsibilities. These particular responsibilities, as well as wider leadership issues, will be considered in science specific contexts.
The course will be held at SSERC in Dunfermline with accommodation being provided at the King Malcolm Hotel
