Leadership CPD

The MAT will seek to develop leaders to lead beyond their own school and where necessary influence and/or lead more than one school. Leaders will have the opportunity to be supported into new roles. Where there is weakness or lack of capacity, then an executive headteacher model may be employed.

BDMAT provides opportunities to work in partnership with existing centres of educational excellence through developing a relationship with a local Higher Education provider to give access to research and development and masters programmes.

Quality assured training and network opportunities include access to the annual leadership conference, annual governors’ conference, middle leader networks.
