Senior Leadership Secondment Programme

An immersive experience for high potential senior school leaders.

The Greenshaw Learning Trust recognises that there are a number of senior school leaders of very high potential who would benefit from extended time spent developing a deep understanding of the culture and leadership behaviours in high performing schools. To support these leaders, either to further enhance their leadership potential within their existing school or to prepare them for leading in a new school of their own in the future, the Greenshaw Learning Trust is offering an opportunity to take part in an immersive experience for one half-term.

Applications will be welcomed from leaders of high potential, supported by their employers. Successful applicants will be placed in one of five of the Trust’s schools in the South West - Yate Academy, Five Acres High School, Gloucester Academy, Henley Bank High School or Scott College - for a fixed period of one half-term. During this time they will work with the school’s leadership team, contributing to strategic oversight of an aspect of the school development plan. There will be opportunities to experience and contribute to all aspects of school life including the implementation of our:

  • Morning routines
  • GLT Reading programme
  • Curriculum Planning including the GLT shared curriculum
  • Teaching and Learning Principles
  • Teacher coaching programme (DDI)
  • Leadership Development Programme
  • Raising Standards Programme
  • Character Programme

The Greenshaw Learning Trust is welcoming applications for the secondment programme for half-term 1 (1 September 2021 to 18 October 2021) and applications must be submitted by Wednesday 7 July 2021.  For further information and details on how to apply for a place, please click here.
