Twilight Support Programme

Our twilight programme of support is a truly flexible model of CPD for schools and colleges. There are various models of delivery wholly dependent on the needs of those involved. We are able to work and engage with one school or collaborations of multiple numbers of schools, as well as for a varied number of participants. The number and length of sessions is also flexible and we can provide one facilitator for the programme or a different one for each session: the choice is yours! Each session can be developed to ‘stand-alone’ or be linked by preparation and gap tasks providing a comprehensive support package.

We have developed a sample suite of twilights comprising three strands which can be delivered independently or linked together to form a comprehensive leadership succession planning programme. Each strand comprises up to six sessions which can be tailor made to fit individual contexts. However we are happy to discuss your exact needs and the most relevant strands to maximise the impact of the sessions.
