The 'What We Offer' Page on the website gives a good description in general terms on how HMWLead can work with schools on their journey of transformation. This brief post gives a summary of the work we are currently doing with schools to give you an idea of the variety of ways we can work together.
School 1 (Secondary School in South Island)
Working with Senior Leadership Team to establish the principles to shape a curriculum review for Year 11 in 2024 before moving to a wider curriculum review for Years 9 and 10. We explored what makes for effective 21st Learning and thought about how these could be brought to life in their context.
School 2 (Secondary School in South Island)
About to begin working with the Senior Leadership Team as they embark on an exciting journey of transforming quite traditional learning and structures into an innovative model from Years 7 to 13.
School 3 (Secondary School in Upper North Island)
Providing mentoring of a new Principal as they begin their leadership in an innovative school.
School 4 (Secondary School in Lower North Island)
Supporting a new Principal with a new SLT to redesign their curriculum and institutional structures to better reflect the needs of their students and community and which is based on a clearly defined set of core beliefs and values (see previous post).
School 5 (Secondary School in Central North Island)
About to begin a refresh of the Years 9 - 10 curriculum so that it better meets the needs and interests of their students and community.
Governance Support Organisation
About to present a series of workshops on the why, what and how of leading schools in a way that is focused on a clear set of core beliefs and values.
Other Areas Being Explored
These partnerships have a strong focus on curriculum, but all of them involve leaders and teams exploring their core values and beliefs so that there is real coherence and clarity for their practices. Each partnership also provides opportunities to look at different ways of leading so that we grow how we lead and how we can grow others to lead.
Sing out if you think there'd be value in us working together.
