Stated learning outcomes for this course

Writer and novelist Michael Korda claims that ‘the fastest way to succeed is to look like you are playing to someone else’s rules whilst quietly playing by your own’. Dare to be Different illustrates how real transformational change can occur when a school leader does just that, as Will Ryan shares the trials and tribulations of the story’s fearless protagonist, Brian Smith, as he endeavours to take back ownership of what happens in the classroom.

Suitable reading for all school leaders – at both primary and secondary levels – who are looking to promote excellence and raise aspirations within their schools and wider communities.
