N​ew Leadership Development Curriculum

T​he DfE recently published its plans for the next stage of development for the NPQs. The main changes are the introduction of a fourth level for Executive Leaders (NPQEL) and a simplification of the content framework, replacing competencies with 6 'content areas'  and 7 'leadership behaviours'.

In addition to these content changes, we have the freedom to open up new opportunities  to work collaboratively​  together and tailor the programmes to meet local or specialist need, for example for staff working within a MAT, or leaders from schools with similar priorities (coastal, rural, faith, small), as well as to integrate a wider range of learning opportunities within the framework for accreditation. While greater local variety may be found in the course delivery, the national accreditation of the programmes will be assured through the use of common national assessment criteria and submission requirements. 

As a result we are delighted to be working in partnership with LLSE and local Teaching Schools to re-design a new and improved leadership curriculum for our schools, which we will be able to share with schools from September.

Welcome to EKLA

The East Kent Learning Alliance is a partnership of local secondary and primary schools.

Two of which are Teaching Schools – Kent Coastal Teaching School and EKLA Teaching School.

Our vision is to achieve school improvement through working collaboratively and to provide highly effective, relevant, affordable and accessible training and professional development opportunities for all staff (teaching and non-teaching) within schools across the area.

Our aims are:

  • To attract, recruit and train high calibre new entrants to the profession.
  • To provide targeted and bespoke training and professional development.
  • To further develop leadership within and across schools

  • To provide school to school support to help raise outcomes of young people

The type of training and support we can provide includes:

  • NPQML and NPQSL
  • Governor Training
  • Handwriting Success
  • School Reviews
  • Internships for aspiring Middle and Senior Leaders
  • Bespoke CPD

Each of our strategic partners: Dane Court Grammar School, King Ethelbert School, The Canterbury Academy, Herne Bay High School, Joy Lane Primary School, Herne CE Infant & Nursery School and Capel Le Ferne Primary School, have strong and effective working relationships with their clusters of schools.

We are always keen to develop our network of schools and colleagues that we work collaboratively with, so please contact us if you would like further information.
