There is increasing recognition of the need for training in specific management skills for professionals taking on the complex responsibilities of middle management in schools. This, however, is an area in which there has tended to be a training gap. Here, Jack Dunham helps teachers to identify and develop the knowledge and skills necessary to manage teams effectively in primary or secondary schools. He does this by focusing on four major areas: staff management, management skills, professional development and change and stress management. This book will be invaluable to all those seeking or already acting in the crucial middle management role in schools.
