In association with:

Higher Education Leadership Programme

The Higher Education Leadership Programme offers a unique opportunity for current and future senior leaders to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding to drive effective improvement within an educational setting.

There are growing demands on school leaders and increased expectations of the education system in part due to the broadening nature of Academies and Trusts. This has brought greater accountability pressures and emphasis on both raising standards and widening the social goals of schooling as outlined in the Education White Paper (DfE, 2016).

This course tackles issues directly related to the current field of national education and educational leadership. It challenges those in attendance to develop deeper critical thinking about how to meet the needs of policy and the needs of your students and staff. It does this by exploring strategic leadership approaches and practices, and how to lead teams effectively.

Participants will work through the process of initiating and driving change at an individual, group and/or organisational level. This will be taught by offering learning opportunities on how to lead change, develop capacity to change through coaching and mentoring, and reflective ethical leadership.

The Higher Education Leadership Programme provides professionals with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and practical skills in an environment designed to maximise their learning and leadership experience through a variety of learning activities, opportunities and working collaboratively with peers.
