Summary:  

In recent years, a great deal has been written about teacher leadership in educational policy and literature. The General Teaching Council for Scotland’s (GTCS) Standard for Full Registration states that: 

 “All teachers should have opportunities to be leaders. They lead learning for, and with, all learners with whom they engage. They also work with and support the development of colleagues and other partners.”   GTCS (2012) 

The Scottish College for Educational Leadership (SCEL) are committed to developing effective teacher leadership and exploring how teachers can be supported to develop as teacher leaders.  This workshop will be led by Fearghal Kelly, SCEL.  Fearghal is the Lead Specialist for Teacher Leadership and he was the driving force behind the creation of the online community of teachers www.pedagoo.org which has provided alternative, community driven approaches to teacher professional learning across the UK. Fearghal leads by example and is passionate about his own professional learning – he has completed a Masters in Education in Professional Enquiry in Education through the University of Stirling. 

The aims of the workshop are to allow participants to: 

  • develop their understanding of teacher leadership and their role as teacher leaders 
  • co-construct approaches to supporting teacher leadership which could be applied within their school community 
  • experience an innovative participatory workshop approach which they could develop and use in their own practice. 

Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 18 November at the latest.
