"Jan is am amazing facilitator and coach! When working with her I quickly learnt that I could trust her implicitly and was incredibly impressed with her emotional intelligence. She is incredibly knowledgeable and supports all that you are working on with overviews of work from leadership gurus, that deepens your knowledge and thinking. I have found working with her truly inspirational and look forward to our journey together in the ventures that she is supporting our teaching school alliance and our multi academy trust with."

Hello, I am Jan Rudge. Leadership Partners is my company.

You can access materials via my sharing learning page, or below on this page, that I may have spoken about in a facilitation session, including access to my 360 tool for senior school leaders and the NEW Leadership Edge Accredited Coach Competencies for Schools and Academies programme providing incremental coach development.

I am a learning leader, I hope you are too so I will be adding to my collection of SHARING LEARNING throughout the year! I have a coach myself, Hugh Todd with whom I have developed my practice over the years and our new joint venture Leadership Edge providing accreditation at three levels for school coaches.

My current work streams include working for a teaching school, (recruiting and supporting School Direct student teachers and SLE’s) and developing CPD leadership programmes (for a multi academy trust.)

In 2018-19 my work will include the launch of the Leadership Edge Accredited Coaching Programmes in 6 schools and with a group of SLE’s, together with leading the coaching strand of one of the first Strategic School Improvement Fund programmes, coaching Head Teachers and English leads across a further 20 primary schools across the Black Country. I will also be facilitating the content and delivering the national NPQML, NPQSL and NPQH programmes. Very exciting!

I have coaching clients in all phases of the education sector and other clients outside of education.

At its heart, Leadership Partners is about facilitating the growth and development of colleagues at all levels, serving the needs of the current and future generation of school leaders as they strive to build schools that are future focused and pro-active in the current  climate of fast paced change.

I hope Leadership Partners and it’s new venture Leadership Edge can support you on your personal leadership journey.

"Working with you to support and develop great school leaders who are passionate about personal growth and development”
