Congratulations to our Graduates! Well done to our trainee teachers who have graduated from the University of Leeds with PGCE’s Red Kite Conference Thursday 21st September 2017, 4 - 6pm at Harrogate Grammar, Duncan Baldwin, ASCL, will be discussing how the National Measures have worked this year and what they mean for Ofsted and Schools. Y&H Stepping Up Programme 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 of a 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 one of the targeted local authority areas. However, it is open to any NPQH graduates and non-graduates across the region.
