Our 6 Priorities

To ensure that leadership and management within education is ranked ‘Good’ by Ofsted, with a strong aspiration for ‘Outstanding’
To ensure that all leaders can access high quality induction, training, support and development via clear career pathways, from career entry level, to whole system leadership.
To promote innovative and flexible leadership structures within schools, in order to ensure improved pupil outcomes and cost-effective provision.
To align and strengthen the work of the strategic partners to improve leadership. Partners include the LA, the Teaching Schools, all schools and academies, regional and national bodies.
To make effective use of expertise and good practice already in the system, to learn from the best leaders locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
To develop the sustainable conditions, opportunities and incentives to recruit and retain top quality leaders and potential leaders. We also support succession planning.
