Aspiring Headteacher – Preparing for Headship Programme
The programme’s main purposes are:


• To ensure that participants are aware of the aspects of leadership which they need both in their current and future roles;
• To explore with participants their leadership styles and approaches
• To familiarise and prepare the participants with the requirements for gaining the NPQH.

The programmes will use the key features of the professional learning model:
• Collaborative learning using triads to develop each other at peer level
• Reflective practice by applying learning back in school between workshops
• Coaching and mentoring through a Leadership Coach
• Engaging with relevant data and evidence from research in the content of the programme.

Each participant will be allocated a Leadership Coach with whom they will discuss their individual self-evaluation, learning from the programme and development needs.

Programme delivery will primarily be on a workshop basis with additional approaches adopted as appropriate.

Participants will complete ‘gap’ tasks between workshops – these will focus on what has been learned and tailored to leadership practice in their own school.
