Learning to Lead - B units

Empowering pupils to become successful citizens.

Learning to Lead - B units


Learning to Lead - the units consists of sixty-three independent topics, each designed and specifically written to support the teaching of character through leadership.

The availability of individual units from our Learning to Lead Module A, B and C programmes allows schools and teachers to create a bespoke, context specific character through leadership sequenced curriculum that focuses on teaching the knowledge, language, values and behaviours that underpin effective leadership and provides a framework that complements the delivery of PSHCE and SMSC education.

The main thrust of the units is directed at personal leadership development, ethics, morality and an awareness of community and social justice. They are designed to be acceptable to pupils from all backgrounds, cultures and beliefs.

The programme is extensively mapped to a number of statutory and non-statutory guidance for governing bodies, school leaders and school staff published by the Department for Education.

Below you will find the twenty-one Module B units.
