Leaders for Impact

Leaders for Impact is a leadership development programme for teachers in a position to influence whole school approaches to arts and cultural learning. It will enable 15 committed and experienced professionals to increase their professional impact through honing their leadership skills.

Between July 2018 - March 2019, participants will develop innovative approaches to problem solving, share inspiration through peer learning, and pursue a tailored programme of knowledge and practice-based learning. They will return to school re-invigorated, better networked, and empowered with advanced skills to make a stronger contribution to school improvement.

“The Leaders for Impact programme is transformational - it will challenge your thinking, provoke deep reflection and introduce you to a network of leaders who are passionate about offering our children and young people a rich, broad and meaningful education”
