Focus on... the Early Headship Coaching Offer

Re-vamped for spring 2023, in partnership with the Teacher Development Trust (TDT).

Structured, unassessed support based on the best available evidence about what makes an effective headteacher.

Am I eligible? 
You are eligible if you meet all these criteria: 

  • You are in your first 5 years of headship 
  • You are employed in England in a state-funded school or state-funded 16 to 19 organisation when you enrol 
  • You have either completed an NPQH or are taking one 
  • You have not withdrawn from the additional support programme previously. 

What’s involved? 
The Julian Teaching School Hub is delighted to be working with the Teacher Development Trust (TDT) and Educate Norfolk on this exciting programme.

The programme runs for a 12-month duration. It consists of five one-to-one coaching sessions with an experienced system leader, interspersed with the whole cohort of headteachers attending day visits to local settings.

Day visits help headteachers to understand school leadership in different contexts, and form supportive peer networks. They represent a progression from Educate Norfolk’s Headteacher Support Programme, rather than duplicating this existing support for new headteachers.
