Effectively managing organisation change, budget difficulties, staffing restructures and potential staff redundancy is an ongoing requirement of the role of a senior leader.

Aimed at school leaders with line management responsibility at all levels, this session will equip delegates to have the confidence to effectively manage both the informal and formal staffing structure review procedure, with and without redundancy(ies).

From initially identifying the need for organisational change and a potential staffing structure review through to implementing formal redundancies through a dismissal processes, we will provide practical examples and interactive training tasks to guide delegates through legislation, procedure and best practice.
