Drawing on the experience of outstanding Senior Leaders, Headteachers and Business Leaders, Inspired to Lead will enable you to overcome the barriers and challenges you face to ensure that you will achieve your goals.

We explore the key skills and attributes of leadership, including communication, team-building and motivation. This programme will help you to:

The course is based on the principle of creating leaders at every level and is suitable for all Headteachers, Deputies, Assistant Headteachers, Middle Leaders, and those aspiring to leadership positions.
