Many local authorities in Scotland run successful early leadership programmes. Typically these are for teachers taking initial steps into project, team or school leadership. In session 2011-2012, Rodger Hill (QIO in Dumfries & Galloway Council) approached Education Scotland to build a community on Glow to support the work.
17 colleagues from Dumfries & Galloway, introduced themselves and took part in a programme of ten Glow Meets on such topics as mentoring, ICT and learning and promoting yourself. The programme included a work-shadowing exercise and a commitment to a change project.
Like all of the PL communities on Glow, colleagues on this community are making their professional learning visible for the benefit of other educators. You can find the community on http://bit.ly/eyphome on Glow
Rodger kindly popped in via Glow Meet and gave us a 15 minute outline of the EYP programme at a recent conference. You can find details of the recording on Glow
If you want a community for any professional learning topic, local or national, just drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to help
