    Support for new Headteachers is recognised as a priority by Oldham Local Authority.  In order to provide this support, a Headteacher Induction Programme is both funded and commissioned by the LA.  The programme is now well established and has been successfully delivered for over 5 years.  The two year programme comprises of both face-to-face and mentor support including networking opportunities with other Oldham Heads and participation on Level 1 Coaching Programme.

    Content for the face-to-face days includes shaping the culture of learning, enquiry, dialogue, reflection and performance in Oldham schools.  The programme intends to build leadership capacity with a shared knowledge, understanding, language and skills base around leadership coaching and mentoring as well as sharpen self-evaluation and stimulate the necessary ‘on-the-job’ learning.
