Transforming education in Wales in partnership with the Welsh Government

Welsh Government has identified the need to recruit and retain inspirational leaders in order to deliver its educational mission. As a result, a clear pathway for developing leadership from middle leaders to executive headteachers has been devised. 

Bangor University and University Wales Trinity Saint David’s (Yr Athrofa) won the tender to accredit the National Consortia’s Leadership programmes, with teachers having the opportunity to gain accreditation ranging from a PGCert through to a doctoral qualification. 

The first programme to be endorsed by the National Educational Leadership Academy, and jointly validated by Bangor University and University Wales Trinity Saint David’s (Yr Athrofa), is the Newly Appointed and Acting Headteachers, with its first National Development Day held on the 7th November 2018.

Professor Nichola Callow, Dean of the College of Human Sciences said:

“We are delighted that Bangor University’s School of Education, alongside the University Wales Trinity Saint David’s (Yr Athrofa), have been an integral part of delivering on the Welsh Government’s initiative to drive improvement and leadership across the Welsh education sector for the benefit of our children.”
