The Head Start local induction grants scheme is now closed.
Following the publication of last year’s education White Paper the College has been reviewing its approach to providing and supporting leadership development.
The educational landscape is changing with a greater shift towards schools drawing on their own expertise and knowledge to drive improvement. As more money goes directly into schools, the College’s own funds – and our ability to subsidise leadership programmes in particular – will reduce. In future, our role will focus more on creating outstanding leadership development content that others can deliver and on using subsidy to support priority areas of need.
Throughout 2012 you’ll start to see changes across many of the programmes we currently offer. One of these changes is the withdrawal of the Head Start local induction grant.
The Head Start programme will continue to provide practical advice and support to enable first-time headteachers to become highly effective early on in their role. The programme offers NPQH graduates and new first-time headteachers mentoring and networking opportunities as well as a wealth of practical online learning modules and online short courses suited to different contexts.
