You already know that you’ve got a passion for teaching and perhaps you’re currently working in the field. But what if you’re destined for something with a little more responsibility, like school management?

With The IIE School Operational Planning Short Learning Programme from The Business School, you could find yourself rising up the managerial ranks in no time at all. This short learning programme is a must for those who see themselves taking on greater operational responsibilities within the education sector.

A common excuse for not studying further is always a lack of time. With most of our students already in the working world, we can tell you that this needn’t be a worry for you. Short learning programme lectures are held once a week on a Saturday or weeknight, so they won’t conflict with work. With the programme spanning seven weeks, you’re only seven weeks away from improved skills and more opportunities!

The curriculum covered by this short learning programme includes timetable scheduling, activity co-ordinating, maximising a school’s academic calendar, meeting preparation and management of school resources. This makes for more efficient running of a school and effective crisis management when teaching staff are in short supply.
