In September, executive leaders of schools and trusts joined a two-day conference in Nottingham, organised by EDT, as part of their NPQ in Executive Leadership (NPQEL).
The NPQEL programme supports school leaders who are, or aspire to be, an executive headteacher or have a CEO role within a school trust with responsibility for leading several schools. The event was led by Dr Jim Rogers, NPQEL Programme Director and National Partnerships Advisor. Dr Rogers said,
“Our first NPQEL residential formed an important part of the delivery of the Executive Leader programme. Not only was it two days of teaching, focusing on ‘Leading Improvement at Scale' and ‘Leading Change at Scale’, but it was also integral to building a collaborative network of executive leaders through this national programme.
“The sessions were designed to provoke thought and discussion, challenge thinking and bring the theory to life. It was a real pleasure to meet everyone in person and the feedback for the event was fantastic!”
