Y & H Stepping Up Programme for Aspirant Headteachers

Who is it for?

This programme is targeted primarily towards experienced Senior Leaders who are deemed ready for their next step promotion within 12-18 months in specific areas where it is proving difficult to fill Headteacher vacancies. The aim is to supply more Heads of School and Headteachers, but also develop existing Headteachers who could provide high quality leadership in more than one school or as part of a Multi-Academy Trust and therefore develop into Executive Headteachers/CEOs.  NCTL targeted funding means that the opportunity costs only £300 for applicants working in a school in Yorkshire and the Humber

Eligibility Criteria

Participants must:

  • be a senior leader or Headteacher who is deemed ready for next step promotion to a Head of School, Headship or Executive Headship/CEO role within 12-18 months
  • have the endorsement of their Headteacher and/or Chair of Governors

To access the targeted funding participants must be employed in a school within Yorkshire and the Humber.
