Developing Headspace Programme –
Group Nurture Meal
Connect with the fellow Heads on your programme, share experience, expertise and good food.
Summer Term – London
We are now accepting applications for 2019/2020 cohort which commences in September 2019
The group Nurture Meal takes place towards the end of the year and is designed to give Heads another opportunity to come together as the programme draws to a close.
We hope to create a collegial and relaxed space where Heads can strengthen the relationships they have built over the duration of the year.
It will also provide an opportunity to:
– Re-charge your batteries at the end of the school year
– Explore ways you can take your learning further and maintain your reflective practice
– Identify mechanisms for continued, support and encouragement across the group
– Reflect on programme outcomes and lessons learned
There will be a very loose structure to the evening to ensure that the meal gives you the chance to relax, enjoy stimulating conversation and good food, at the end of the programme.
These meals will take place in the Summer term in a private dining room in London.
Timings: 6.00pm – 9.00pm
