About me



Dennis Lavelle

In my early career, after graduating from Queens' College Cambridge, I taught mathematics in secondary schools and sixth form colleges. I completed 16 years as Principal of Winstanley College, a highly successful sixth form college in Lancashire, and in 1997 I began my second career in training & consultancy. I became a lead trainer at Manchester University's Centre for Educational Leadership and also a registered consultant at the National College of School Leadership in Nottingham. I was a "trainer of trainers" at Hay Group's Education Division and am currently a licensed facilitator for the Emotional Intelligence programme. In addition to my own work in schools and colleges the national programmes I have facilitated include:

  • National Professional Qualification for Headship
  • Leadership Programme for Serving Headteachers
  • Head for the Future
  • Leading from the Middle
  • Further Education Senior Management Team Programme.
