As promised, I’m super excited to share the trailer for Series 2 of the We Are In Beta Podcast and a sneak peak at what to expect.
Last series, I asked each school leader how they were tackling a range of problems in their schools.
This series, in each episode, we’re taking a deeper look at powerful stories beneath the big topics in education.
So what’s coming up in the series?
Each week, we’ll be telling the positive, practical and often very personal story of an inspiring school leader, who is tackling a specific challenge in schools.
You’ll learn how they are:
driving organisational behaviour change
breaking new ground in co-headship
building schools from the ground up with flexible working in mind
understanding what student behaviour is really communicating in PRUs
meeting students' needs through unconditional positive regard in special schools
building transformational school cultures and communities through traditions
using experiences of sexism to design robust recruitment processes
promoting gender equality as a HeForShe advocate
improving BAME leadership, representation and diversity
providing allyship to support under represented groups
Featuring appearances from the incredible:
Leann Swaine (Headteacher, East Barnet School)
Lisa Farmer (Co-Headteacher, Thomas Russell Infants School)
