Primary Middle Leaders Development Programme 2021/22

Starting from late September this course will:
Take place over two terms across seven sessions
Involve participants attending a series of half-day and twilight sessions
Involve a half-day school-based session working with the course tutor on their respective school improvement project
This will need to involve one or two middle leaders plus a senior colleague who will be the leadership coach who will attend some of the sessions.
The cost of this programme is £495 per middle leader delegate. Please note that there is no fee for the leadership coach.
HEP will invoice schools once booking has been completed. Places will be limited to 20 middle leaders. Full details of the programme expectations and schedule can be found here Course information
Delegates will only have to book the first session to ensure entry to the full course.

The training will take place over two twilight sessions on Tuesday 5th and Tuesday 12th October 4pm-5.30pm, via Zoom. Please make sure you are able to attend both sessions of the training.
