This week saw the launch of the new and acting headteachers programme, developed in partnership by the Regional Consortia, University of Wales Trinity St David, University of Bangor and the Local Authorities.

This is the first programme to meet the endorsement criteria set out by the academy. We will be working closely with the partnership to ensure that the provision continues to meet the high standards of the academy and the needs of educational leaders in Wales. We are confident that this new programme will offer inspiration and support for a new generation of Headteachers who play such a key role in leading the learning for our children and young people.

The NAEL looks forward to seeing an ever-expanding range of endorsed provision available to leaders at all levels across Wales. The next step in this journey is our current call for endorsement which extends the call to include provision for Experienced Headteachers.
