Leadership Development

Our 2020-21 programme of CPD includes a range of leadership programmes tailored to staff at different stages in their career, including  early career CPD.


  •  NEW: Into Leadership: From effective teacher to excellent leader.  This course was first launched in January 2020 and was hugely successful. It is aimed at those beyond NQT stage, in Years 3-5 of their teaching careers. This course will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience to develop your career from a confident class teacher to an effective and creative leader, who is ready to take their expertise beyond their own classroom and make a difference on a whole-school level.    


  • National Professional Qualification (NPQ) for Middle Leadership (ML) and for Senior Leadership (SL) - The West London Teaching School Alliance is a cluster leader delivering NPQs in partnership with UCL. It is £210 cheaper to book these UCL accredited programmes through an alliance such as ourselves than directly through the university.  See link to flyers on the left for booking details and costs. Booking deadline 2 October 2020                                                                                                      
  • NPQ Facilitator Training – We hope to offer opportunities to train other senior staff from alliance schools to deliver NPQs. Please contact if you would like to train to deliver NPQs.                                                                                                                                   
  • Shadowing opportunities: As part of our collaboration work we can facilitate your staff visiting another school to observe staff at any level and/or subject. If you wish these can be reciprocal, but this is not a requirement. Please contact
