Leaders in Teaching Programme

The Leaders in Teaching Programme supports and develops those involved in or aspiring to teaching and learning leadership positions. 

Over the course of six months, the programme offers a combination of:

  • Seven half-day workshops to meet and work with a cohort of colleagues on topics of direct relevance to teaching and learning leadership
  • The opportunity to inform programme content so it offers what you need in your current context
  • Short 'fieldwork' tasks to complete between sessions applying concepts covered in the workshops to your current activities
  • One-to-one sessions to address leadership challenges and to help you implement what is being learned
  • Feedback from those around you on your performance in key areas
  • Support and challenge from your peers on the programme, as well as from external and internal facilitators.
