Excellent school middle leaders will be placed in some of the most challenging schools across England in a move to raise standards and improve the quality of teaching and subject leadership, Schools Minister David Laws announced on 25 February 2015.
The secondment programme will invite up to 100 ‘outstanding’ middle leaders – such as heads of department, subject or year group heads – to apply to spend a year in underperforming schools, including those in deprived, coastal and rural areas.
The one year scheme will enable schools which face some of the greatest challenges to benefit from the skills, expertise and knowledge of strong middle leadership to help raise attainment. It will also provide an important professional development opportunity for participants with a view to training the excellent school leaders of the future.
