About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 57 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, teachers and practitioners with advice and practical guidance on adopting the essential characteristics of the teacher-leader in the classroom to inspire and engage pupils, based on the principles and practice of military leadership.

Military training and experience can bring a fresh perspective to classroom leadership, offering teachers tools and techniques to build mutual trust and care, and create classroom environments in which teachers have the confidence to teach, and pupils have an eagerness to learn.

In this webinar, George Vlachonikolis, Assistant Headteacher and former British Army Officer, draws upon the most intense and thought-provoking experiences of his life serving in Afghanistan, to offer a military-inspired approach to classroom leadership, helping teachers negotiate challenges and achieve the objective of effective teaching and learning.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding why leadership matters for classroom teachers and how military-inspired leadership skills are applicable in the classroom

  • Gaining insight into the essential characteristics of the teacher-leader model, and how these can be used to inspire and engage

  • Appreciating the importance of establishing and maintaining credibility with pupils, and being able to identify activities which can support this

  • Recognising the value of building mutual trust and care, and ensuring that pupils know that teachers have their best interests at heart

  • Understanding that effective leadership requires energy which in turn requires self-care and work/life balance
