New to Pastoral Leadership

Course Code:


This new practical course for Spring 2023 is designed to help kick-start your pastoral leadership career. It is designed for people who are new into or are aspiring to pastoral leadership positions and aims to give you the confidence to manage and lead effectively. We’ll take some best practices, theories and experiences from within the pastoral teaching world and from further afield to create a discursive, thought-provoking day. We’ll take time to understand the new skills needed to engage those around you, both managing practicalities of getting the job done, and inspiring your team to work with you to achieve goals. We’ll look at some different styles of management and where each is effective and the potential pitfalls and how you can develop resilience to protect yourself and thrive under pressure. This course can also be brought into your school, and tailored accordingly, if required.


  • Exploring the behaviours of an outstanding and inspiring leader
  • Managing people effectively and with confidence
  • Understanding different styles of management and their effectiveness in different situations
  • Understanding the new responsibilities you have as a pastoral leader and the dangers of becoming over focussed in one area
  • Strategies to build relationships with all those around you to get high levels of buy-in
