The blended module involves two half-day online interactive workshops, and c. 1 hour of independent reflection and reading. Indicative content:

  • Understanding ‘change’ for equitable and inclusive education: learning from what has and hasn’t ‘worked’
  • Working with stakeholders on inclusion: opportunities and challenges
  • Being an inclusive leader: exploring personal positionality, power, and authenticity
  • Real World application: structured independent and small group reflection to apply learning to your current work
