HOW CAN I USE THIS JOURNAL?
Educational leaders, Coordinators and Directors will be able to use the journal pages to:
- Manage their time more effectively.
- Mentor educators regularly rather than just monitoring.
- Lead and support teams with confidence.
- Make decisions, organise and plan easily for their day, week and month ahead
- Present meetings educators actually want to attend!
- Simplify frameworks, outcomes and principles.
- Record progress on goals and collect new ideas to share.
- Keep track of meetings, networking and important events.
- Better understand the expectations of their role.
- Record ongoing evidence day by day that will be ready to go for those A&R visits – no more scrambling and sleepless nights worrying!
- Collect information on professional development opportunities to share with their educators.
………And so much more when leaders begin using this journal created especially for their important (yet often confusing!) role.
? Print & add to a folder so you can get up and go with all of your essential information at any time and write down ideas and tasks as inspiration arrives!
✅ Collect and write down ideas, suggestions and reflection topics as you go for important focus areas to help you bust myths, explain and simplify linking frameworks to learning outcomes.
✅ Use simple checklists to organise, reflect on and summarise your week and month in just a few minutes. Tick off those important jobs that need to be done then keep in your journal folder to share evidence of processes and action taken regularly.
✅ Take your journal to meetings, mentor sessions, planning reviews and day to day activities to ensure you are always well prepared, organised and feeling empowered and supported in your role.
