School leadership development is accelerated when emerging and aspiring leaders have opportunities to practice leadership in different context and mentored by able and experienced senior leaders. We are developing robust systems to identify talent from emerging careers to fast track candidates through bespoke and nationally accredited training.

Tidal Teaching School work alongside Carnegie Leaders in Learning to deliver professional development to schools, including the NPQH, NPQML and NPQSL. This programmes can be organised for groups or clusters of schools and take place within Tidal schools.

Carnegie Leaders in Learning has a strong track record of delivering professional development to schools across the Yorkshire and Humber region and beyond. They have worked with schools for more than 14 years and their core  approach is a commitment to delivering a service that is personalised, flexible and reliable.

Carnegie have an excellent reputation for providing leadership and school governance programmes, and are licensed by the National College for Teaching and Leadership to deliver National Professional Qualifications. With coaching a fundamental element of their leadership programmes, they strengthen school leadership by enabling teaching and support staff to develop essential skills. These skills not only aid continuous professional development but also provide the best educational outcomes for pupils.
