SPRING 2021 COHORT

APPLICATION WINDOW NOW OPEN

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS 18TH DECEMBER 2020

ConnectEd Partnership’s Programme delivered in partnership with Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) will give you the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to drive successful team performance and improve classroom practice. Our blended learning model combines practitioner-led and locally delivered face-to-face events with action research, peer-to-peer reflection, online learning and personal tuition.

You will be encouraged to reflect on your own areas of strength, observe ‘good’ and outstanding practice demonstrated by other school leaders, allowing you to evaluate the impact you have as a leader in your own school and identify your key priorities for development. For full information about what each programme entails and how to apply, please click on the buttons below.

Please note that funding arrangements for NPQ programmes have altered and DfE scholarship funding is no longer guaranteed. In view of this, ConnectEd Partnership, through Best Practice Network, are offering NPQ qualifications through the Apprenticeship Levy. Additionally, applicants can still apply through the traditional route, where the costs would need to be met by either the individual or the school.

You can find out about each route, by selecting the relevant buttons under Application Window & Funding arrangements.
