Training Courses

This full-day interactive course explores the causes of underperformance and how a proactive response, sound practical action plans and effective communication can expedite issues to a positive or at the very least an appropriate conclusion.

The issue of underperformance in Schools and Academies is a critical one given the very real impact on pupil progress and continual drive for School improvement.

This combined with pressures from Ofsted, the Government, and the Local Authority to raise standards means issues of poor performance and conduct need to be addressed as soon as they arise.
