Programme Information

In a primary school, undertaking a subject leadership role gives teachers the opportunity to make an impact beyond their own classroom and develop new skills and expertise; it can offer meaningful development opportunities for primary practitioners and is often the first experience of leadership. The role of a subject leader also brings challenges especially for those new to the role or those who do not see themselves as ‘expert’ in a specific subject area.

The programme is designed for those aspiring to or new to subject leadership roles. It is also suitable for those with experience wanting to refresh their knowledge, understanding and skills to better lead their areas.
