Professional Development



We place huge emphasis on developing the leadership skills of both support and teaching staff. We work in collaboration with local schools, Teaching School Alliances and the Leadership Live consortium to offer a continuum of development opportunities – everything from getting you ready for leadership through to supporting you in a Senior Leadership role and onwards to Headship.

In September 2017 the National Professional Qualifications for Middle and Senior Leaders are changing. We hope that Windsor Academy Trust will be a provider of these new programmes and the attached documents provide an overview of the new content areas.

Our programmes build in the strong support that coaching can bring and they also ground learning in leadership challenges to make sure there are impacts back in school.

What we want for our leaders, wherever they are in their journey is that they continue to move forwards, growing in confidence and capability to be the best that they can be for our schools.

Here are what some of the delegates on these programmes have said:

“Discussions are really useful; their perspectives are sometimes changing mine.”

“I recognise developments in myself on a weekly basis. I continually reflect and evaluate my leadership strategies.”

“Allows for reflection as a ‘seasoned’ teacher.”

“I am beginning to view my role from a completely different perspective, my relationships with other staff has changed/is developing as a result.”

“I’m analysing data more; I’m making staff responsible for and aware of under-achievements.”

“Reading think-pieces and having time to discuss them with leaders at other key stages has been most useful.”
