Hi all, I am looking for some advice on what type of course I should take. Both my HOD and Head teacher have recommended NPQ courses but I am not sure if I should take the Middle Leaders course or the Senior Management course. I am currently Second in Department for English and my Head Teacher recommended taking the SL course as our school offers plenty of independent learning and autonomy in my role. He thinks the ML course would be a waste as I would not be learning anything new. However, it may also look strange to have a SL course on my resume when I apply for HOD in the future. I have 8 years teaching experience and held a variety of roles over the years. My goal is to become a Senior Leader for Curriculum but I want to make sure I am solid in each of the steps that lead to this role so I can be an effective SL. I am also wondering where I should take my course. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am in Hertfordshire but have easy access to London and Cambridge.
