Change has been a major component of education for the past few years as wide-ranging new legislation has been implemented. However, practical advice on how to manage and cope with change in schools has been hard to come by. This book, written by two practising psychologists, seeks to remedy this by providing practical psychological approaches to the management of schools in general and the management of change in particular. Newton and Tarrant outline the mechanics and processes of organizational self-appraisal, and look at how devising objectives can best help a school. They also offer an analysis of the key methods for promoting effective change, and ways to monitor, review and evaluate change. Most importantly, the book shows how change can be managed to increase job satisfaction, and avoid unnecessary stress, conflict, frustration and wasted effort.
