Our CPD for new and aspiring senior leaders has been formulated by successful and experienced senior leaders from all sectors. It provides sound foundations, so you return to your school refreshed and equipped to develop your vision or plan your pathway to headship, as well as prioritise the daily demands of your new role. You will enjoy hearing insights from practitioners and other experts, gain a picture of the changing educational landscape and consider ways to sustain your personal resilience throughout your career. There will be opportunities to network with other new school leaders and members of the NAHT team.
We provide the highest standards of support and advice throughout your time as a school leader - whether you will be leading in the early years, primary, secondary or special schools and alternative provision.
On becoming a new school leader, we know that you’ll have competing priorities; we think you should have the opportunity to develop your potential, which is why we are offering this conference at subsidised rates to members.
