This one-day course forms part 1 of 3 parts of the ASE Technicians Leadership Programme and it’s the first step in developing your leadership skills to change and improve how you lead and manage your technical service for the benefit of students and staff. The day will explore what makes effective leadership and management, help you to evaluate your own leadership strengths and areas for development, support you to develop a vision for your technical service and how you sell the importance of technicians to your school, look at how to manage your time more effectively, examine ways to develop and deploy your team and how you can implement successful change management.

Whilst they are part of a series of Leadership modules, each module can be taken individually as many technicians opt to choose those particular topics that are most relevant to their career development.

The remaining 2 days of the Technicians Leadership Programme are:
