Online, quality CPD for senior leaders and aspiring leaders

"A great range of topics – something for each member of the team. It’s help us involve more staff in planning because everyone can pick up on sessions at a time that suits their other commitments"

Following the fantastic feedback we have received about our previous series of Leading on… webinars, ASCL Professional Development is delighted to be launching a new, autumn Leading on… programme designed for current and aspiring senior leaders.
