Testimonial from 2016 participant and recently appointed Headteacher.:
"The course was excellent preparation, and helped focus my attention on the impact my past experiences have had, whilst also giving me insight into effective school leadership"
Recommendation from a 2016 participant:
"This was a fantastic course that was incredibly beneficial to me in my usual working day and also in the fact of using the experience for my interest in applying for headship positions. I thought that the speakers that were available to us were very inspirational as well as being very honest about the stresses of the job. I found that the triad and the mentoring head teacher were one of the most valuable elements of the course and I have now gained some supportive professional friendships and support networks. I feel that I now have other professionals in my life that can advise me in my next step of my career. I would like to thank everyone involved in making this course so worthwhile and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about the next step"
