The Talented Leaders Programme

17 January 2014

At the North England Education Conference yesterday, Schools Minister David Laws gave a speech on school leadership and teaching standards, including the Talented Leaders Programme. I attended the NEEC and it was interesting to hear what different members of the Education sector had to say about these issues and to learn more about this programme.

The Talented Leaders Programme is a new initiative aimed at placing excellent school leaders within struggling schools in geographic areas that have been identified as having a lack of leadership talent. This initiative forms part of an overall government strategy to encourage collaboration between schools and individuals in order to improve standards across the sector. Whilst there are clear benefits to collaboration in some form, there will be a great challenge in ensuring that this programme results in long-term improvement and is not merely a short-term fix for the schools involved.
