Aspiring Middle Leaders (AML) Programme: (NB: Secondary Only)
The Aspiring Middle Leaders programme is designed to meet the needs of colleagues who are considering the step into middle leadership. The content would also be applicable for recently appointed middle leaders as they aspire to take their career to the next level. Colleagues considering this pathway should be secure classroom practitioners and have experience of delivery across at least two key stages.
The programme will help Aspiring Middle Leaders to:
- Continue to develop their teaching and become more skilled in the classroom
- Discover the differences between leadership and management
- Begin to take on responsibility for an area of school life beyond their classroom
- Build and develop skills used in a middle management role
