Are you an aspiring Principal? Rss

Posted on: October 19th 2017

The Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance has opened applications for our National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) programme – the first-choice qualification for anyone aspiring to become a Headteacher / Principal.

Our Aspiring Leaders approach to the programme prepares you to lead a school confidently and effectively, in a system where schools and academies are fully responsible for self-improvement and delivering high-quality outcomes for students.

This provides a unique opportunity to learn from some of the best school leaders in the country and observe what makes different schools ‘outstanding’, and is suitable for newly appointed Headteachers or Principals, or for highly motivated, experienced senior leaders who will be ready to take on a role in 12-18 months.

The course involves eight compulsory face-to-face training days and a full day induction, delivered over three terms, with each session taking place in a different school or academy.

The programme is very practical, with all face-to-face training sessions facilitated by outstanding, school leaders in their own schools and academies. Serving leaders enjoy sharing their own unique experiences of headship, including the achievements, challenges, and systems and processes that were used to transform their schools. You will be guided through specific leadership tasks and will receive expert support to develop effective whole school strategies.

Learning from our leaders and sharing their experiences, you will grow to understand some of the many facets that make up the role of the Headteacher.

The Harris Federation Teaching School is licensed to run a range of Aspiring Leaders programmes, led by some of the most talented principals in the country and delivered by high-performing principals, middle and senior leaders with exceptional track-records. Our leaders have a wealth of knowledge and are highly experienced in improving outcomes for pupils and students.
