Subject Leader Networks 

The Subject Leader Networks provide a strong and supportive professional learning community for subject leaders and those involved in delivering education in secondary schools. It does this by exploring best practice in from a national and local perspective and provides a forum in which professionals can collaborate and share ideas and strategies to improve outcomes and experiences for students in all schools.

We run Subject Leader Networks as part of our on-going commitment to supporting the important role of the Middle Leader, recognising the crucial part Middle Leaders play in whole-school improvement and providing guidance to subject leaders as they come under even closer scrutiny from Ofsted.

Subject Leader Networks held at the Minster Teaching School are delivered by current subject leaders judged to be consistently outstanding, senior leaders with experience of developing leadership in others, Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) and facilitators accredited to deliver National College leadership programmes.

Who is it for?

Subject leaders, aspiring subject leaders of History, SLEs and lead teachers. Participants in the network receive three face-to-face events each academic year as well as opportunities to work more regularly with colleagues across schools and to experience learning visits in different schools. Each network meeting will include subject-specific features tailored to meet the specific learning and development needs of participants and their schools.  Those attending will have access to a learning gateway to share resources and keep up-to-date with developments in their subject.

In 2018-19 we are offering the following networks:

  • Geography
  • History
  • Mathematics
  • Modern Foreign Languages
  • Physical Education
  • Religious Education

Dates for 2018-19 will be confirmed once the required numbers have been reached, to ensure viable cohorts.  For each subject network there will be one full day's session held each term.

Cost:  £250 per delegate per network for three face-to-face days or £90 per individual session (including resources, lunch and refreshments).
