Leadership Development

In addition to school to school support, the Teaching School also delivers face to face training for Middle and Senior Leaders via the the National Professional Qualification (NPQ). The qualification covers 6 content areas which set out what a leader should know and be able to deliver and 7 behaviours which set out how the best leaders operate. The content areas have been embedded within 3 online courses, whilst the leadership behaviours are explored during face-to-face training.

The NPQML and NPQSL are delivered locally by SLE’s and our NLE from our Teaching School. The Alliance of Leading Learning (ALL) have confirmed that scholarships are available from the DfE for specific schools. The training is an excellent opportunity for schools to take up the training which has proven measured impact and gives teachers the opportunity to undertake a school centred project and network with other local school leaders. We had excellent feedback from this year’s delegates:

“A very well-planned, well-led session which was hugely informative and inspiring.”

“I really enjoyed analysing and then shaping the idea of my own climate, as well as looking at leadership styles.”

“Well structured sessions: useful discussion and examples relating to projects. Clear guidance through leadership/expectations of leadership.”

“Well balanced approach which allowed for whole class, small group discussion.”

“A good mix of facilitator led instruction and group sharing. The positive atmosphere for constructive and supportive discussion and questions/answers.”
