Twilight Professional Development for Senior, Middle and Aspiring Leaders. 

"Using Micorah has been a very wise decision. Deborah has delivered several programmes to our middle leaders that have not only been effective in developing the knowledge and skills that were necessary, but that we have also been able to shape to our bespoke needs. This is the most cost-effective training I have come across and I highly recommend it." John Connelly, Deputy Head Teacher, William Brookes School.

Costs and Information. 


All courses, mentoring and coaching is delivered in your school or in a school within your MAT. I would require a quiet, comfortable room large enough to hold the group, and digital projection.


Courses can be delivered during twilight sessions, CPD sessions or non-contact time during the day. This can be agreed according to need. Course sessions can be spread out on a weekly or two weekly basis to allow time to practise strategies in between. 

How many trainees?

To maintain the ethos of trust, team work and a safe place to be challenged and take risks, groups should be no more than ten in number.
