What does good leadership look like in schools? How can we develop a vision for our schools that bridges the gap between expectation and reality? How can we help our staff and students flourish? Join us for an evening with Andy Wolfe, Deputy Chief Education Officer in the Church of England, as we examine how the Christian message offers a fresh perspective on leadership in education.
Education has great potential to shape and transform lives and communities across the UK. But with schools, and school leaders, under increasing pressure to deliver outcomes in line with an ever-growing set of criteria, how do we as Christians discern the most fruitful priorities for our schools, staff, and students? Together we’ll explore how a vision for education can inspire our thinking about our day-to-day leadership decision-making in relation to Curriculum Design, Teaching & Learning, Pastoral Care, and a wide range of school leadership issues. We’ll also be thinking about how a Christian approach to education can enhance and improve everything we’re doing in the classroom, and think theologically about our daily leadership decision-making.
This evening is specifically designed for Christians leading, or exploring leadership, at all levels in the education sector. Come and connect with other Christians in educational leadership, as we share wisdom and explore together how we can make a difference in our schools.
As Deputy Chief Education Officer (Leadership Development) for the Church of England, Andy oversees the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership nationally. Andy joined the Foundation team from The Nottingham Emmanuel School, where he worked for 10 years, initially as a middle leader, before being appointed Vice Principal, overseeing the development of Teaching and Learning, and the school’s Christian ethos. During this time, he was part of the group that wrote the Church of England Vision for Education: Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good.
He brings a wealth of leadership experience to his role and is committed to combining rich theological reflection with the most incisive and creative approaches to improving Teaching, Learning, and Leadership in schools.
