Leaping into Leadership Internship

We are delighted to share with you an exciting opportunity for aspiring middle leaders, aspiring senior leaders and aspiring headteachers.

In collaboration with the Kent and Medway Teaching School network, we are once again offering colleagues an opportunity to take part in a NCTL subsidised Internship Programme.

This is the second cohort that we are recruiting for, for whom the programme will start in January 2018. Our first cohort was a group of 30 aspiring Middle and Senior Leaders and Headteachers from across Kent and Medway.

Leaping Up to Leadership

At the launch the participants heard details of the programme from Research Champion, Ben White, and enjoyed a keynote speech from Bev Farrell, Headteacher of Canterbury Primary School, who charted her leadership development in an entertaining, practical and informative way.

In preparation for the event, candidates had completed a leadership self-review and selected a research topic linked to the new NPQ standards of Teaching and Curriculum Excellence. On the day, they then broke into their vertical research groups to share information and arrange school visits.

For more details about joining cohort two, please see and if you have any queries, please contact us.

Please note that the deadline to apply is Friday 24th November
