Virtual CPD Programme NEW*** - Aspiring to Headship (A programme for Senior Leaders aspiring to Headship)

There are virtually no documented instances of troubled schools being turned around without intervention by powerful leaders. Many other factors may contribute to such turnarounds, but leadership is the catalyst.

These are important questions because accountability has changed nearly everything.
