"The Launch event was the most inspiring CPD I have taken part in, certainly since becoming a teacher. I think my school was quite taken aback by how enthused and excited I was by the future following the event." Craig Lilleyman, Rosetta Primary School
What is Getting Ahead London?
Getting Ahead London is a Greater London Authority (GLA) programme which is being delivered by Challenge Partners, and is now moving into its third year. The aim is to provide aspiring London headteachers with the skills, experience, networks and knowledge to take the step up to headship. All participants receive a series of coaching sessions from an experienced London headteacher, as well as support on understanding the next steps they can take on their journey to headship.
Challenge Partners’ role through its grant is to provide the operational delivery of the programme, ensuring that events run smoothly, the coaching programme is delivered successfully, and the programme can be evaluated appropriately.
Who is it for?
Getting Ahead London is for senior school leaders in London. The programme is currently only open to London senior leaders and costs £500 to take part in.
How will impact be measured?
Throughout the pilot year, 2016-17, we commissioned an external evaluation and conducted a through formative evaluation. The full report is available here.
