Stepping up to Senior Leadership

Moving from middle leadership to senior leadership requires a mind-set shift to whole school thinking, the skills to manage complex teams and competing priorities whilst maintaining focus on ensuring you are keeping your students at the centre of what you do. This exciting new programme will support you to develop the knowledge, skills, mind-set and networks to develop as a senior leader. Whether you have recently joined the senior leadership team or aspire to do so soon, this programme will help you take and be successful in the next step in your teaching career.
