Research reveals success of leadership development programme

17 February 2020

Dr Peter Matthews of the UCL Institute of Education and education consultant Rita Bugler have published an article in Professional Development Today journal* about Getting Ahead London and its ongoing impact.

In Creating a leadership pipeline for urban schools, he reveals that of the 60 leaders participating in the programme, one third (33.3%) had been appointed to promoted posts by the end of the year: 15 (25%) to headships and 5 (8.3%) to other promoted posts. This was approximately double the promotions achieved by the 57 unsuccessful applicants for the programme which they were able to trace.
