Senior Leadership Programme

The senior leadership programme tackles issues and change management at whole school level. Participants discuss mitigating risks and succession planning, as well as having time to delve into national and local educational agendas.  Opportunities to self-reflect on their own ‘why’ in preparation for senior leadership is also encouraged.  Finally, participants experience interview style scenarios led by Headteachers, who share their experiences with colleagues. 

“The CAT aspiring senior leaders course has equipped me with the necessary skills and knowledge to not only have the confidence in leading a team, but to also take care of their needs and ensure their growth. Through the course, I have learned to communicate effectively, make strategic decisions, and lead with integrity.”

“One of the key benefits of the course was how it helped prepare me for interviews. The course provided me with valuable insights into the mind-set of decision makers and the qualities they look for in senior leaders. I was able to tailor my responses to interview questions to highlight my strengths and demonstrate my potential as a strong leader.”

“Overall, the course has been instrumental in my personal and professional development, and I am confident that the skills I have acquired will help me excel as a senior leader in any school.”
