The new principal teacher of pastoral care/pupil support (targeted support) is expected not only to manage the cross curricular PSD provision including the personal, social and health education curriculum but also to manage those staff who deliver such support. Other important aspects of delivering care and support which now require a professional management approach include building partnerships with parents and support agencies, integrated approaches to pupil support involving inter-professional working, the requirements of quality assurance and improvement planning, supporting and mentoring colleagues, as well as the management of all aspects of whole school approaches to pastoral care systems and provision (universal support). This, set within a growing culture of educational accountability and a requirement to deliver the basic support entitlement as outlined in the Curriculum for Excellence Building the Curriculum 3.

This module is offered to all staff who aspire to middle management positions and beyond.
