Deputy Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher and Aspiring Leaders Network

The Education Team is offering a FREE network to explore leadership, the national picture and to share practice, advice and experiences.

We will look together at the direction of travel, exploring current and future issues. There will be opportunities to discuss the things that matter to you, to seek advice and to share ideas and solutions. Each session will begin with a short, useful briefing with the latest updates.

This network will be ideal for deputy headteachers and assistant headteachers, but also for those who aspire to develop their leadership roles in schools.

Why not bring your lunch.  Arrive any time from 12 pm onwards and bring your lunch (we will provide beverages) and have an informal chat with us before the networking starts.  Sessions will run from 1.30 - 3.30 pm at Church House, Leeds, on Friday 9 November 2018, Friday 8 February 2019 and Friday 17 May 2019.

If you would like to join us, please let us know by emailing info.ed [at] (info.ed).
