Unleashing Leadership: Exploring the hidden assumptions that determine and limit leadership practice to unleash new leadership across the FE System

The key aim of this research is to explore the underlying leadership assumptions, perceptions and aspirations in the FE system. Based on a framework of four discourses of leadership derived from published academic research of Dr Simon Western, it aims to discover the biases and preferences that shape how leadership is thought about, developed and practised in FE. The research findings will be widely distributed with the aim to stimulate dialogue and lead to new leadership development initiatives to make FE agile and robust to meet the future challenges it faces.
