Future Leaders - further extension of applications and now also in the North West

Future Leaders is a fully funded leadership development programme for senior leaders working in challenging schools. Participants are committed to closing the achievement gap through the belief that every child can achieve.  In 2006, we launched our flagship leadership development programme in challenging secondary schools in London.  Since then we have expanded the programme to include six regions and we now have more than 300 Future Leaders working in over 200 schools across England.

We realise that the attainment gap starts early and that this issue needs to be addressed at the beginning of a child’s education. With this in mind we have extended our flagship programme to include 25 primary participants from challenging schools in London and the North West to join Future Leaders Cohort ’13.

The Future Leaders programme is for current, qualified teachers, who have the talent and commitment to become headteachers of challenging primary schools within two years. Successful applicants to the programme, which is delivered at no cost to the school or the participant, receive 17 days of residential facilitated training, bespoke career support as they progress to headship, on-going coaching from an experienced headteacher, regular training opportunities, an online social network providing tailored support and best practice and visits to exemplary schools across England. This programme gives participants the skills and resources to lead schools that improve the life chances of children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We are looking for schools to nominate staff and to pass on this information to your senior leadership teams for the opportunity to take part in this fully funded programme, where the participant will remain in your school.  For more information, please see the attached brochures and our website –  The application window is open until Monday 22nd April.  To apply, or if you have any questions about the programme, please contact us on 0800 009 4142 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
