Women in Leadership in Education

The Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools’ Alliance is delighted to be the Dorset hub for the Women in Leadership in Education South West Programme which is led by The West Country Teaching School Alliance and Dartmoor Teaching School Alliance.

The gender gap in education leadership is unacceptably wide and the pace of improvement unacceptably slow. According to Dr Kay Fuller, in 2015 women made up 64% of the teaching workforce but only accounted for 40% of headteachers. Fuller argues that – at current rates – it will take until 2040 to close the gap.

The Women in Leadership in Education programme aims to help reduce this gap through its coaching pledge. This enables women to access coaching at any point in their career, free of charge and at a time to suit their specific needs.

If you would like to develop or maintain your own coaching skills and support women leading education you can book a place on our two workshops:

  • Workshop 1: Coaching for Impact 27 March 4:30pm – 6:30pm The Woodroffe School
  • Workshop 2: Coaching Women Leaders 02 May 4:30pm – 6:30pm The Woodroffe School

There is no charge for these workshops. They are open to women and men who want to contribute to developing women in leadership roles in education.
