We develop world changing leaders for education
So many signals tell us that our stakeholders are looking to us to not just lead in our organisations, but also in our wider communities. They expect us to be proactive on issues of social and environmental responsibility (Korn Ferry ‘CEOs For The Future’ report 2021).
The Wider Purpose Programme is one aspect of our response to building a strategic approach to Collective Sustainability and Responsibility in Schools & Academies.
World changing leadership
If COVID-19 has shown us anything, it's that Schools are much more than just places of learning. They have a Wider Purpose.
・They are hubs for community health and wellbeing.
・They are guardians of social justice.
・They are champions of global issues at a local level.
Meeting the sustainability and responsibility challenges of the decades ahead will require authentic, world changing leadership at every level.
In your classrooms, your school, your community and the world.
And we can help you to develop yours.
