WCTSP Equality and Diversity ‘Leading for Impact’ Programme 2016 - 17
We are pleased to be participating in this government initiative which looks to increase the equality and diversity in school leadership. Our programme looks to address the nationally, and locally identified need to train and support women, and staff from BME groups, to progress into middle and senior leadership roles.
Our new programme started with an introductory event on 12 December 2016, including the first of our support network groups.
Being a part of this NCTL project has meant that we are able to provide 13 teachers from our partner schools and local area, with a bespoke programme designed to meet their needs. This includes free access to:
- Leadership training through our 'Leading for Impact' programme,
- Coaching sessions,
- Aspiring leaders network sessions.
Our aspiration is that the programme helps participants develop their confidence, skills and knowledge to become an effective leader, empowered to develop flourishing teams.
Each participant works towards the Certificate qualification of the Wellington 'Leading for Impact' programme, which is quality assured by the Department for Education at the University of Oxford. In this programme, partcipants sign up to a set of courses tailored to their individual needs. By completing the qualification, they will be eligible for membership of the Chartered Management Institute and we hope that they will be applying for the next step in their leadership career ambitions.
