The development of leaders is an expectation of all Church schools and is explored as part of the SIAMS inspection process.
The Diocese offers support to governors free of charge to all schools filling senior leadership positions. This includes support through the interview process and the induction of new staff.
The Diocese in partnership with the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership and their partners run a range of NPQ leadership development opportunities for established, new and aspiring school leaders. Details of which can be found here. Other leadership and CPD opportunities can be found on our Training and Events pages
Colleagues may also consider signing up to the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership which offers a variety of programmes, networks (online, local and national) and research opportunities all aligned to the Church of England Vision for Education Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good.
If you are aspiring to become a leader of a church school or a leader wanting to gain a greater understanding of the theology of leadership please email Tatiana Wilson who is able to offer confidential support.
