What’s included

This programme is aimed at aspirant senior leaders who are not currently in a substantive SLT role within school but have the potential through ambition and ability to be future senior leaders.

There is an internship programme which follows the course, in the summer and autumn terms, and involves three full or six half days in a host school offering the opportunity to shadow senior leaders and experience, first hand, the role of the SLT.


The programme will be delivered through a series of twilight sessions at the start of the spring term which start at 4.00pm and end at 5.30pm. The course  for 2016-2017 is currently running but a new cohort will start in January 2018.
