Leadership Development

Growing the best leaders for our children

Leadership Development is an important part of the Bury Teaching School Alliance. Developing teachers and growing leaders is essential if we are to ensure that our children receive the best possible education both now and in the future. We are  aware of the challenges facing schools particularly in relation to recruitment and retention. Bury Teaching School Alliance aims to have a co-ordinated approach to teaching and leadership development with a career pathway available to every teacher starting their career in a Bury school. The pathways currently available are:

  • Initial Teacher Training (ITT) through Schools Direct (2016/17 round application round opens in October 2015 )
  • Newly Qualified Teacher Training and support (NQT)
  • Recently Qualified Teacher Training and Support (RQT)
  • National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders (NPQML)
  • National Professional Qualification for Senior leaders (NPQSL)
  • National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH)
