We've come a long way since starting Leading Together
"Leading Together has given us the opportunity to look at bigger themes, like culture and strategy and change, and how we can combine those as a leadership team, together."
- Paul Greenwood, Headteacher at Hazel Wood High School (Bury, North West)
The Early Career Framework is exceptional support for NQTs
"The Early Career Framework provides a complete course of support and material that could fill any gaps in our NQT’s training, while also developing them in their first year on the job."
- John Stainer, Assistant Headteacher at Great Torrington School (Torrington, South West)
We used to work to the Gatsby benchmarks - now we get them to work for us
"The Careers Leader programme helped me look at what fits each individual pupil best and which pathway will be right for them."
- Emma Nolan, High-level teaching assistant at Chadsgrove School and Specialist Sports College (Worcestershire, West Midlands)
Because of the NPQSL, I’m now an assistant headteacher
"Teachers are naturally self-reflective, but the National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL) took me out of my comfort zone."
- Sarah Wardle, Assistant Headteacher at Benfield School (Newcastle Upon Tyne, North East)
