Senior Leadership

This is a new qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a senior leader. It was designed for senior leaders with cross-school responsibilities, including experienced middle leaders, deputy heads, special educational needs co-ordinators (SENCOs) and advanced skills teachers, and other senior staff looking for further professional development but not aspiring to headship at this stage in their career. This qualification has a flexible, modular structure that combines essential modules with the freedom to develop your own professional areas of interest through the choice of elective modules. You may, for example, want to learn about effective whole school management or develop your skills in building partnerships.
