Are you an aspiring Headteacher, actively looking to move into headship in the next two years? There is an opportunity for a small number of colleagues to have free mentoring & coaching support from experienced Bradford Headteachers over the next two years, supported by a programme of masterclasses

We have a very limited number of places available for colleagues who are aspiring to become a Headteacher - and who are currently working at a Bradford maintained school of academy - to join a Bradford Opportunity Area-funded programme for new Headteachers.

Bradford Birth to 19 Teaching School and Star Institute have been commissioned to provide mentoring and coaching support for 50 colleagues in 2018/19 – 2019/20, who are:

  • New to headship
  • Taking on a second or subsequent headship
  • Aspiring to become a Headteacher

Exceed Teaching Schools have received a complimentary commission to provide a programme of masterclasses over the same timeframe.

This commission was made in line with the priorities of the Bradford Opportunity Area Delivery Plan:

To express an interest, attach a statement of no more than one page, indicating your current experience, career plans, your reasons for wanting to be part of this opportunity, and the name and contact details of your Headteacher, who should be willing to act as your referee.
