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 an experienced Bradford Headteacher this year.

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 were commissioned to provide mentoring and coaching support for 50 colleagues 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 programme has been extended to welcome a new cohort of colleagues.

This commission was made in line with the priorities of the Bradford Opportunity Area Delivery Plan:
To apply, please write, in confidence, to Christian Bunting, Teaching School Director, Bradford Birth to 19 at

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 and should submit a short reference simultaneously. 

Applications should be received no later than noon, Friday 4th October 2019.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Christian Bunting by email.
