Stepping Up to Senior Leadership - Non-accredited CPD - University of Derby

Stepping Up to Senior Leadership

For middle leaders who are thinking about moving into senior leadership roles.

Research has demonstrated that two things have the largest influence on results; great teaching and great leadership!  Pressure on senior staff to deliver to tight targets is generating a significant skills shortage and has resulted in a narrow field when filling Headships across the sector. There are many highly skilled and talented middle leaders who have the skills and the ability to move into these roles where they can support the education system they value and facilitate better outcomes for our young people.

Stepping Up to Senior Leadership offers the chance for middle leaders to consider which skills they need to make the move into senior leadership, what support they would need, and how to feel confident about taking the next step.


  • Dispelling some of the myths about senior leadership roles
  • recognising the need for great teachers and middle leaders to take their talent into senior leadership
  • better recruitment into senior roles.


£1,000 for up to 15 staff. Larger groups negotiable.
