Leading by example – Heads secure qualifications

Congratulations to Chetwynde Headteacher Steve Jefferson and Head of Primary Reece Edwards who have achieved leadership qualifications after going back to the classroom.

Steve secured his National Professional Qualification in Executive Leadership after 18-months of expert-led coaching face-to-face and online with One Cumbria . The course is designed to lead change and improvement across multi-academy trusts and further strengthens the leadership in the school.

Reece achieved the National Professional Qualification in Headship to develop knowledge that underpins expert school leadership. He attended sessions online and in Manchester to prepare him for the next step in his career.

SCMAT is proud to recognise the important of professional development and there are a number of staff undertaking NPQs across the Trust.

It’s also great to picture our staff on the same steps where the achievements of our pupils are recognised!
