Girls' schools launch new leadership scheme to develop women headteachers

04 July 2017

If you want to step up into a more senior role, but feel you don’t have the skills, this new leadership mentoring scheme may be for you. State and independent girls’ schools are working together to encourage women into top jobs, launching a mentoring scheme to encourage female teachers to develop the characteristics required for senior leadership.

Free to women teaching at schools in the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA) and the Association of State Girls’ Schools (ASGS), they will begin working to develop leadership potential with high-performing business, public service and army mentors.

Women can join at any point in their career, whether their next leadership step is running a school project or a department. More information is available here.
