Stepping up to Senior Leadership
Middle Leaders preparing for their next steps and recently appointed senior leaders in both primary and secondary schools
Stepping into a Senior Leadership role can be one of the most challenging transitions for leaders in schools. This TKAT programme is designed to bridge the gap between middle leadership and senior leadership – giving an insight into the wider knowledge, skills and experience needed to lead whole-school initiatives. There are 4 sessions designed around the skills and qualities of excellent leadership.

This session will consider the values and moral purpose of effective senior leaders. We will look at examples of outstanding leadership both within and beyond education.
