Leadership Development Package

Our Leadership Development Package provides training and support at all levels of school-leadership.

For those new to leadership, our New Leaders Programmes offer hands-on, closely directed training in all the required skills and procedures required to become an effective Year/Phase Leader or Subject Leader. These programmes provide participants with an effective ‘How-To Manual’ for the job alongside opportunities to apply each skill in their own school and trouble-shoot any issues or problems that arise. By the end of each programme, each leader will have completed a full year’s cycle from action planning to impact evaluation.

For more experienced leaders, our Effective Middle and Senior Leaders Programme provides an opportunity to fine-tune the core skills that lie at the heart of effective leadership and reflect on their own leadership style as they take on increased responsibility. It provides an opportunity for participants to establish a network of similarly experienced leaders and provides the ideal launch-pad for them to advance their careers.

Our Head and Deputy Head Teachers Residential Workshops is aimed at Executive Heads, Head and Deputy Head Teachers and Heads of School. It operates as a two-day residential, providing Senior Leaders with specialised senior leadership training and focused workshops on issues of critical significance across the Alliance. Leaders will have ring-fenced time to spend on their own school priorities supported by our team of highly experienced advisors: SEF writing, School development planning, Analysing School Performance data, Improving attendance  and Writing Pupil Premium Statements.
