Course description

Characteristics of Effective Leaders focuses on the knowledge, skills and characteristics which are needed to be an effective leader in the early years sector. It also explains how these characteristics underpin what Ofsted’s research shows that managers in good and outstanding settings actually do. It is often said that individuals enter the early years sector because they want to work with children, not because they want to become managers. However, it is becoming increasingly evident that the children’s experience in a setting and their learning and development is dependent on the quality of the leadership and management.

This one module course delivers one CPD hour and comprehensively covers:

  • the knowledge and skills needed to be an effective leader
  • the different types of management and the characteristics of these managers
  • how these characteristics underpin what Ofsted's own research tells us
  • the sources that feed into a vision for an early years setting
  • the change management model.
