Modern human resources and leadership techniques are as relevant in a school or college setting as they are in business. Our MDSO course is aimed at Head- and Deputy Head teachers of all types of educational institution, as well as any other school staff responsible for the development of their colleagues, and shows how these ideas can be integrated into a school environment. We start from the premise that in order to develop others, you must first know your own strengths, weaknesses and personality traits, and move on to explore practical ways of motivating, managing and raising awareness of colleagues’ character traits.

Training is conducted by tutors experienced in management techniques, and informed by the latest ideas and literature. The course includes language lessons, delivered by teachers with a minimum TEFLI-level qualification, to enable participants to operate effectively in an international environment, as well as independent group work sessions for further exploration and sharing of ideas. In addition to more traditional methods of management, the course explores new electronic and online tools to facilitate more effective development.

To ensure the course runs smoothly and that all participants can take part in the activities, a minimum B1 English level is highly recommended. The minimum age for participants on our courses is 23.
