New year, new roles, new networks

As the new year begins, the importance of having supportive professional networks around you is clear. Fiona Aubrey-Smith gives us some suggestions

Starting the new school year, most of us will be taking on some kind of new or different role. It might be teaching a new year group or starting at a new school, leading a new subject or management area, or as a new-to-role middle or senior leader.

Even those who are experienced in leadership or headship roles will be taking on new responsibilities, new schools, developing dynamics or extending reach. It is an exciting time at the beginning of the year, and a time to set in place some foundations that give you the best chances of success for the year ahead.
