HFL Education’s comprehensive school leadership and management programmes are designed to provide support and guidance for existing headteachers as well as deputy and assistant heads and subject leaders who aspire to more senior roles.


How can HFL support me as a headteacher or leader?

Our school leadership and management programmes aim to provide comprehensive and friendly support from our own experts, all of whom have a wealth of demonstrable relevant experience.


Moving to a New Headship Programme

We know that starting a new headteacher role or moving to a new headship can be a daunting prospect and can often leave those new in post feeling isolated.

The programme covers a wide range of practical and strategic topics through face to face and online training for the first 12 months in role that starts as soon as the headteacher begins their new position.

With the option of having a serving and experienced headteacher as a ‘professional partner’ for support during the first year, the programme is designed to ensure your new head develops the practical skills, insight and knowledge they’ll need to be successful.


Aspiring Deputy and Assistant Headteachers’  Programme

The Aspiring Deputy and Assistant Headteachers' Programme covers a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Improving the quality of education
  • Understanding the fundamental principles which underpin a strong curriculum
  • Understanding school finance
  • Building leadership capacity and effective partnerships
  • Effective communication
  • Working with governors and colleagues in HR


Subject leadership

We also offer Selling Your Subject and Securing Your Subject training programmes that cover the key knowledge and skills needed for effective subject leadership.
