Code: NS/19/8 Senior Leadership Development Programme 2019-2020 (Cancelled)

This programme is for both existing team leaders as well as those with clear leadership potential for senior whole-school responsibilities. It will also reflect the needs of Specialist Leaders in Education.

The three-day course seeks to meet the needs of experienced school leaders who wish to develop their ideas about more senior levels of school leadership, who wish to maximise their skills and effectiveness - and who also seek to make further professional progress. The programme will be underpinned by an emphasis on the key skills of coaching and constructive communication.

The course will also use the unifying vehicle of an individual ‘senior leadership focus’ (research option) to generate learning.

This programme was run very successfully in previous years with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Comments include:

'Course delivered in a lively, engaging & inspiring way.'

'Ed Lott, fantastic, motivational speaker, learnt a lot about leadership styles'

'Improving the vision/roles of the SLT can only have a positive impact on learning.'

Code: NS/19/6 NQT Programme 2019-2020

The NQT Support Programme aims to provide high quality support and development for those

starting their teaching career. This will be achieved through an inspiring approach, which is

facilitated by Headteachers and Specialist Leaders of Education within North Star Teaching School

Alliance. The course is rooted in a drive to develop outstanding practitioners for the benefit of

children in North Star Schools. In addition, the programme aims to embed a commitment to

Continuing Professional Development in NQTs, promoting the ethos of responsibility for their own

development. The programme was extremely successful in previous years, with 100% of delegates

giving positive feedback:

“I will be happier so more effective teaching”

“The flexible approach made it feel relevant and really useful”

“It has helped me take a step back and think about things.”

“Nice to share with other NQTs in the same boat – felt really supported…”
