It has been recognised by Stefani (2015) that educational leadership is an under researched area and yet this is an increasingly important skillset today in the UK with the introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). This workshop will offer findings from some ongoing research into what educational leadership is, what knowledge, skills and development are needed for this role, what challenges there are and, tips on how to make educational leadership positive. Participants will be able to reflect on and discuss their own experiences in light of this research.
