The course is for those who are, or are aspiring to become, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities. For example: assistant / deputy Headteacher or an experienced middle leader
The programme is facilitated over seven half days which includes our welcome launch session and 6 modules:

The course includes a 360° diagnostic test to be completed at the start and end of the programme to judge and reflect on the progress you have made.
Course delivery: As well as face-to-face sessions, you will be supported by online learning with access to all course materials and final assessment information.
Assessment: You must lead an improvement project across your school, lasting at least 2 terms, to reduce variation in pupil progress and attainment and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of teaching. You must submit a written account of the project for assessment.
