Your difference with Management Kits


In- and outside of the school gates, there is a strong understanding that you as middle leaders are at the frontline of teaching practices, learning outcomes and student wellbeing. You are indispensable to manage your department team, to implement development plans and to translate the school vision into consistent practise in the classroom and beyond.  

You deserve being heard and empowered as leaders. Not to forget your important relationships with colleagues which you want to protect. Your role is affected by time constraints and attracts pressure from the top, the side and the bottom of the school.  

Management kits helps you to: 

  • Energize your team, manage goals and development work and lead effective team meetings 
  • Be more intentional in how you handle difficult situations 
  • Let you feel more confidence in your leadership role and maximize your leadership potential, to foster resilience and wellbeing
