Leadership Development

Connect Teaching School Alliance recognises that effective school leadership at every level is fundamental to the quality of education children receive in the classroom. Connect is committed to providing high quality, school-led leadership development opportunities for local teachers. Connect has worked closely with Pat Eccles to develop its own Pathway for Aspiring Leaders – click to find out more.

We are pleased to signpost the Inspiring Leaders programmes of National Professional Qualifications. These qualifications provide national recognition of leadership development and professional achievement for middle and senior leaders.

Nottinghamshire based ‘Inspiring Leaders’ is a “not for profit” partnership company consisting of four outstanding Teaching Schools, a Special School and two outstanding delivery partner Teaching Schools. This group of schools came together through a shared passion and commitment to develop the inspirational school leaders of tomorrow.

Inspiring Leaders has recently been awarded a license by the National College to deliver following programmes:

• National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership (NPQML)
• National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL)
• National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH)

Inspiring Leaders aims to utilise the experience and expertise of some of the most inspirational leaders of today to support the development of school leaders of the future.

‘We passionately believe that great school leadership has the power to transform children’s lives and we are therefore committed to provide the best possible learning opportunities to all of our participants.’
