Continuing professional development

At Stockley Academy we believe that ‘Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders’ and to that end the school is actively involved in a number of schemes which are designed to provide our recently qualified staff, our middle and our senior leaders with the tools they need to become outstanding leaders of the future.

Current initiatives

Colleagues are undertaking the NPQML training for middle leaders and the NPQSL training for senior leaders. Both of these programmes offer points towards a Masters qualification.

Senior leaders have the opportunity to complete an internship at another school in the borough.

We support members of staff in their own academic studies and a number of staff have completed MAs in their own subject areas and in Education.

Senior Leadership Team secondment

Middle leaders wishing to experience senior leadership at first hand are given the opportunity to join the team for a fixed period as part of our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) Secondment Programme, giving them chance to be fully immersed in senior leadership roles.
