Critical incident management - A workshop for members of the school SMT/SLT 

Date: May 17, 2018 




Why should you attend?

Schools are often required to act at short notice to a diverse range of challenges and crises. Managing this demands experience and effective teamwork from SLT/SMT  and can be taxing. At the other end of the scale, schools are likely to be faced with major events which could impact on the whole school, requiring a more complicated and sophisticated response.

This session will equip delegates with advice and strategies to navigate these situations effectively and successfully.
