Burnt Mill Academy Trust BME Leadership Programm

We are delighted to be able to start accepting applications to be part of our innovative programme which combines individual Sponsorshp with group development sessions to develop aspiring leaders with BME backgrounds to move into Senior Leadership roles. 

Companies such as Google and Apple are already harnessing the power of Sponsorship as a model for developing staff, and we are excited to create a self-sustaining model that builds the skills and confidence of participants into the next generation of leaders. 

Full information on the programme and what it will involve can be found here or by emailing Kate O'Shaughnessy for more detalis. 

 

NPQML

 

The National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML) from the National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL) is a new qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a middle leader and will help you develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to lead a high-performing team in a school and to improve classroom practice.

 

This qualification has a flexible, modular structure which combines core modules with the freedom to specialise or develop your own professional areas of interest through the choice of elective modules.

 

NPQML is assessed and awarded by NCTL, with assessment focusing on tasks linked to school improvement activities undertaken in the workplace.

All modules reflect the recent and significant changes in schools and national policy and provide access to a wide set of leadership resources to challenge and inform participants.

NPQML requires a high level of commitment, both in terms of time, and engagement in learning activities.

 

NPQSL

 

The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) from the National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL) is a new qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a senior leader, and help you develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to be a highly effective senior leader in a school.

 

This qualification has a flexible, modular structure that combines essential modules with the freedom to specialise or develop your own professional areas of interest through the choice of elective modules. You may for example, want to learn about effective whole school management or develop your skills in building partnerships.
