Survival Guide for College Managers and Leaders


Survival Guide for College Managers and Leaders by David Collins

A Survival Guide for College Managers and Leaders is a distillation of the key skills and attitudes that you will need to possess if you are to survive and indeed thrive in such a situation. It highlights examples of good, bad and questionable practice from college leaders and managers of all ages. It is a handbook of practical advice and tried and tested approaches to the many problems and challenges that you are likely to face. - David Collins, CBE. This is the definitive survival guide to leading and managing a FE College for College Leaders and Senior Managers. The tremendously experienced and successful College Principal, David Collins, covers every aspect of running a College, from shaping the organisation and communicating a vision to planning and marketing the programme right through to dealing with people and improving quality. Accessibly and engagingly written, and packed with real-life examples, this book will prove essential reading for ambitious senior staff in the FE sector.


This is intended to be a practical handbook of every aspect of running a college, and this author would seem well-qualified to write it. The Teacher Trainer, vol 21, no 3
