For today's Single Item Agenda we are joined by a guest speaker;

  • Amy Whittall, Executive Director for Trust Development at The Mercian Trust, oversees People Leadership and Organisational Culture, after nearly 7 years as Headteacher of King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls.

By listening to this episode, you will:-

  • Trace the exceptional journey of an education leader evolving from the classroom to the boardroom, from navigating milestones and breaking ground along the way, to leaving a mark in both boys' selective and girls' grammar schools.
  • Gain profound insights into the intricate dynamics of succession planning and leadership transitions, career aspirations and progression, and candid discussions on the relationship between Headteachers and Chair of Governors, emphasising the importance of open communication.
  • Uncover the profound and transformative impact of female empowerment and strategic leadership, as experienced through a Headteacher's lens, exploring the nuances of leadership styles and the benefits of visibility of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) at governing body meetings.
  • Receive invaluable guidance on leadership development, including investing in coaching and supervision opportunities, learning to relinquish control with grace, and mapping out the best approach to finding the right successor for a school's next phase.
  • Dive into the complexities of transitioning from Headteacher to Executive Leadership Team member, and having more responsibility for collaboration and cultural alignment and management within educational institutions and trusts; exploring strategies to bridge gaps, embrace individuality, and foster a culture of continuous upskilling and development to manoeuvre generational shifts and recruit challenges effectively.

A true example of multi-dimensional progression, indicating upward career advancement, outward expansion into new roles or areas, and forward-thinking leadership.
