Description

After-school programmes are popular with parents and the community, but are a lot of extra work for headteachers and the staff involved. This book will provide headteachers and administrators with the guidance they need to build a successful and sustainable after-school programme. Based on a national study conducted by the author, this hands-on resource will take educational leaders through the step-by-step process, focusing in particular on the many bureaucratic barriers that can hamper teachers efforts. The author addresses all the important issues an administrator is likely to face while setting up an after-school programme, including hiring, funding grants, facilities, volunteers, programme evaluation, collecting and analyzing data, and building support amongst various constituencies.
