How the programmes work
The Senior Leadership Team and staff are hearing about what I’m doing and seeing the impact on the young people. It feels like our careers strategy is much more embedded across the school.
Improvements across a whole school
Our leadership training isn’t just for individuals. Our Leading Together programme builds your entire senior team with expert coaching and training. It’s free and tailored to your school’s needs.
Take a step back from the day-to-day challenges of leading a school and, as a team, enjoy the opportunity to look to the long-term. With support from an experienced school leader, you’ll learn how to prioritise the improvements that will make the biggest difference – to your school and your pupils.

We’ve been able to identify our strengths and areas for development – but in a very safe environment, with our Achievement Partner coaching us through that. As a result, we feel we have a very clear picture of the things we need to do.
