Taking the Lead

Empowering pupils to become successful citizens.

Taking the Lead


Taking the Lead consists of twenty-one independent topics, each designed and specifically written to support the teaching of character through leadership.

The 21 units of Module B actively encourage personal development. Creating a vision, articulating goals, team leading and speech writing are just some of the practical sessions that mingle with an examination of further leadership skills. The units are punctuated with tasks that encourage reflection and review. By the time pupils reach the final unit they are in a position to monitor their progress and plan their next steps.

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

The availability of the twenty-one Module B units from our
Learning to Lead programme allows schools, teachers, tutors and parents 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.
