Leaders for the Future
The programme focuses on developing leadership skills, knowledge and mindsets, which participants can use immediately to increase their impact beyond the classroom. Participants will join an exciting national network of emerging leaders to learn and share together.
Middle leaders have one of the most important and challenging roles in school. Among other things they juggle teaching and leading commitments, build teams, support whole school priorities, develop staff, manage resources and quality assure. This programme is uniquely designed to focus on these challenges by improving the confidence, competence and performance of middle leaders.

The Principled Leadership programme is for all school leaders committed to putting principles at the heart of leadership, to leading ethically and building strong, sustainable cultures.
Whether you are reviewing your aims for the new academic year or looking longer-term, we all need to make time to consider the purpose and mission (the ‘WHY’) of our schools in a changing world. SSAT can help you and your teams to identify and shape priorities by facilitating opportunities for reflection and goal setting.
