About this course

The Advanced Learning Alliance is delighted to announce the third year of the Senior Leader's Programme which follows on from the very successful previous years. This course will be delivered by Headteachers of our Alliance schools and will prepare participants for the job of, and application to, a Senior Leadership Team.

This course comprises of six core modules. All held as twilights at various Alliance schools.

In addition to the taught part of this course, participants will be expected to complete a small project, overseen by a member of their current Senior Leadership team. This shoudl be a project which has clear outcomes and which allows them to showcase their school wide leadership skills. You will be asked to supply a draft title for your project, together with the name and role of your school mentor for your registration on this course to be completed.

The Senior Leadership Programme also includes a day where participants will be interviewed for a fictitious position as Assistant Headteacher. This process will include a number of realistic interview tasks as well as face to face interview conducted by current Alliance Headteachers. Thorough, individualised, feedback from this process will be provided.
