This is why we have worked with our partners at Open Minds Associates to produce an end-to-end solution aimed at practically helping today’s Headteachers identify and retain the next generation of school leaders.

Begin by assessing your current practice by working through our Evaluation Framework; answering insightful and challenging questions designed to help you reflect upon your school’s circumstances. Engage with our experts, who will offer independent advice as well as support and challenge. Work through a series of actions plans, carefully put together to guide you in becoming a more dynamic, informed organisation who can identify emerging leaders and coach them until they are ready to fulfil their potential.
