Secondary Deputy Heads’ Professional Learning Network

“A learning network that is worth coming out of school for.”


Could your students, you and your school benefit from investment in your own learning more regularly?
Could your leadership be deepened through a focused programme of learning that responds to your needs?
Could you benefit from a learning opportunity that goes beyond updating you on current issues?

By joining the Secondary Deputy Headteachers’ Professional Learning Network, you will be part of a group that prioritises professional learning and draws on evidence based practice.

An effective deputy head is integral to the success of every school. The role requires a diverse range of skills, including the ability to make decisions under pressure, take incisive action, constantly role model, seek and champion excellence, whilst monitor and challenge under performance, and often within the course of a typical morning!

The Secondary Deputy Heads’ network will:

• Create opportunities to deepen your understanding of senior leadership through exceptional learning
• Challenge you to develop your own leadership within the specific context of your school
• Provide time and space for reflection and focused discussion with your peer group
• Update you on relevant issues and the latest evidence based research
• Draw on the expertise of successful school leaders

Lead Facilitator: Michele Miller is Associate Vice Principal at Paddington Academy and a leadership consultant for teaching and learning. She has been facilitating the current deputy headteachers’ network programme.
