Erasmus+ KA1

Schools are complex organizations of structures and cultures reflecting the values of those who lead and work in them. Your staff, as individuals, have different skills, different ideas and different ways of working. Managing people involves dealing with life choices, and human emotions and developing a greater level of personal effectiveness.

Effective school team management strengthens leadership, improves teaching, and learning and increases job satisfaction.

With this course you’ll be able to:

  • Learn some essential strategies for managing individuals and teams, leading and enhancing team performance through delegation, coaching, effective prioritisation and able decision-making;
  • Become more confident and gain essential people management skills to motivate and inspire performance in your school/training center/organization.
