Developing Future Leaders

At Macmillan Academy we are committed to developing future leaders in education. To complement the Expert Teacher Programme we also run leadership training courses aimed at preparing teachers for every step of their leadership career, as well as supporting the National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) for middle leaders, senior leaders, Headteachers and executive leaders.

We recognise how challenging leadership can be in the current fast changing education climate, but it is very rewarding and our leadership training aims to help you to fulfil your potential.

Many of our existing middle and senior leaders have been ‘home grown’ at Macmillan and have benefited from such courses.
