Code: REA-278 Leadership Development Programme - Senior Leaders (SLDP)

The programmes aim to inspire leaders to lead effectively in their schools with courage, confidence, vision and passion. The programme has three core elements: 1. Three face-to-face delivery days facilitated by Andy Buck 2. A Leadership Impact Project (LIP), which will be set up, monitored and reviewed on the training days, allowing participants to practise their leadership in a project aimed to impact on an area of school they identify. 3. Access to a range of resources to allow participants to continue developing their leadership skills between lessons.
