Aspiring to Headship

If you are likely to be applying for headship within the next 12 to 18 months, then this course will support you in ensuring that you are able to apply with confidence and perform highly throughout the subsequent selection process. 
This intensive one-day course will cover a wide range of areas relevant to headship and will offer a balance of activities between those that will mirror the activities likely to be part of a headship selection process and those which will further enhance and develop your knowledge and skills in key domains required for leadership at headship level. There will be some pre-course preparation.
