Identifying Emerging Leaders

With one in four Headteachers due to retire in the next four years, the school system faces a succession challenge to secure enough high quality headteachers to replace them. Planning today for what tomorrow brings is key to the long-term success of  any organisation.

Let us help you to put the building blocks in place to ensure a clear and transparent system for nurturing future school leaders.​

Evaluation Framework (Online)

Assess how your school caters for Identifying Emerging Leaders. Answer a series of challenging and insightful questions designed to highlight the strengths within your school practice and to uncover any shortcomings in your current provision (includes access for up to 2 users for 24 months).
