This course really helped me to reflect on my strengths and areas for development as a leader within my school. I feel more confident and motivated to implement what I have learned about learning and leadership to develop our school further.

The ILMP really reflected the way forward for learning, which is to put the learning into practice immediately. There was not one thing that was said throughout the ILMP that was not asking for reflection and for practical application. Everything that we learned had value and application within the school environment.
