Leadership Development Programme

A career-defining opportunity

Developed in collaboration with leading schools and universities, the Leadership Development Programme combines world-class teacher and leadership training, leading to a qualification that formally recognises your advanced skills in both teaching and leadership. The two-year paid programme is based on global best practice and research and refined through more than 14 years of experience and feedback from leading employers, teaching experts and, of course, previous participants.

During the programme you’ll gain a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), covering both education and leadership, and worth double the credits of a PGCE, to become a qualified teacher. You’ll also acquire the key skills and personal qualities needed to develop you into an effective leader - someone who can make a real impact.

If you can inspire in the classroom, you can bring resilience, efficiency and imagination to any environment, no matter where your career takes you.

Over 10,000 people have joined the LDP so far. Many have remained in the classroom and many others are working in leadership roles across all sectors of the economy. What they all have in common is a belief that every child should have equal opportunities in education and in life, and the knowledge they are contributing towards this goal.
