The educational leader - a manager who 'checks' everybody's documentation, the enforcer of the rules, or a leader who supports their team to achieve their pedagogical goals. This webinar is for those who wish to be a member of the latter group. It is all relational - the role and responsibilities of the educational leader and their team, the setting, pedagogical approach and the frameworks. Crucial to the position of educational leader is a knowledge and understanding of how it fits / you fit within the early education setting. What documentation do you use, and how does this provide evidence of your role? How does the educational leader support a team through change and embed practice? Gaining clarity around your purpose from the outset will assist your teams' understanding, and subsequently, their engagement with you.
