Context

 

Without a doubt the pandemic brought many unexpected challenges for us all. However, one of the silver linings of the past year has been a heightened awareness of what matters most for all of us. We learnt:

– The value of community

– The need to stay connected

– The importance of being supported

We also learnt that deeper connections matter, none of us can survive alone and to thrive and overcome the challenges of leadership life we need real, deep, and meaningful connections with others.

That’s why in September 2021 we will be launching our “Heads Together”, a new IC Alumni community, designed to connect like-minded school-leaders and to provide a watering hole for inspiration, encouragement and support.

What our new community will offer

 

Our “Heads Together” Community and the provision will include the following five elements:

–  3 x Online “Breakfast for the Soul” Coffee Morning (Termly)

– 3 x Headteacher Group Coaching Circles (Termly)

– Local HT Social Events

– “Heads Together” – The Online Community

– “Reflect Together” Day Retreat

“Breakfast for the Soul” Coffee Mornings

These online coffee mornings will consist of talks and discussion groups and are designed to provide both inspiration and regular opportunities for thoughtful exploration around timely and important leadership themes, as identified by members of the community.

Headteacher Coaching Circles

Members of the community will also have the opportunity to be a part of three facilitated online Headteacher Coaching Circles that aim to provide a space for open and honest sharing and reflection, where together leaders can talk through shared challenges and find solutions.

 Heads Together  – Online Community

You will also receive access to a confidential online platform where you can connect with other members and share resources, expertise and support with fellow leaders across the country.

 “Reflect Together” Day Retreat*

At the end of each academic year, members will receive a discounted place at our “Reflect Together” Day Retreat. The retreat will provide a reflective space where you can consider the events of the past year, share and consider key learnings and look forward to what the next school year will bring.
