It is increasingly being recognised within the profession that those taking on the management of curricular or pastoral teams need specific training in the skills of management in order to tackle the complex responsibilities of the middle management role. However, this is an area in which there has tended to be a training gap. In this book, Jack Dunham makes a significant contribution towards redressing the balance and helps teachers to identify and develop the knowledge and skills needed to become effective middle managers in primary or secondary schools. He focuses on four main areas: staff management, management skills, professional development and change, and stress management. This book will be invaluable to all those seeking or already acting in the crucial middle management role in schools.
