Background I have been the subject leader for History since 2004 leading a large department that was part of the school’s Humanities specialism. In 2011 I took on an additional role supporting subject leaders across the school in a variety of different contexts. I am experienced in leading a large department and have successfully implemented curriculum change and led effective intervention strategies. I changed roles in 2014 to my current position as leader of department and school to school support. I am now responsible for leading subject leaders and supporting them in their roles. I am also part of the school coaching team. I have developed a bespoke middle leaders CPD programme for St Roberts to develop leadership capacity. I have a wide ranging experience of working with a number of different subjects and I am skilled identifying areas for development in departments and both coaching and mentoring subject leaders to lead their own teams in these priorities.
