Carnegie Leaders in Learning

Riding Forward TSA are working in partnership with Carnegie Leaders in Learning to offer leadership learning opportunities at all levels and are delighted to be offering the National College for Teaching and Leadership’s Leadership curriculum.

Members of our Alliance work closely together with Carnegie Leaders in Learning to provide facilitators who are outstanding school leaders in their own right.

Carnegie’s  approach to delivering the leadership  curriculum will be through a blended learning experience of learning in the participant’s own school or setting, face to face sessions with facilitators, coaching and on line study with access to a wide range of current resources.

Carnegie will work with participants in a number of ways, including facilitating face to face sessions, coaching groups and individuals and enabling  participants to be the best they can be.

Carnegie can currently offer the following programmes which can be bespoke to meet alliance schools’ needs.

Level 1 – National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML)

Level 2 – National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL)

Level 3 – National Professional Qualification for Headship  (NPQH)

NCTL have announced a new application round for cohort 9 of NPQH which is open now until the 9th December. Prospective applicants can email me direct at for a copy of the application form and for further support. I have attached a copy of the flyer, just in case you are able to email out to your alliance schools.


We have received notification from NCTL that all participants need to be registered with them by the end of January 2017 for the NPQ programmes in this current model. Therefore, if you would like to facilitate or host a new cohort, could you please let me know and we would be delighted to plan a cohort with you.

New Free Governor Workshops

We are now able to offer the governor workshops free to individual schools (while funding is still available), this includes the suite of workshops we have previously offered and two new workshops which the DfE are about to launch. These workshops can be delivered bespoke to schools using, for instance, their own RAISEonline data etc.

The two new workshops are ‘Pupil Premium – Making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged Pupils’ and ‘Forming or Joining a Multi Academy Trust’

The other workshops are:

Performance Related Pay

Financial Efficiencies

Using RAISEonline to improve school outcomes



Research Funding Opportunity

As mentioned previously, the Carnegie School of Education  are wanting to work with schools in partnership to embed research practice and have launched a funding opportunity for partner schools only to apply for. Please see ‘partner research fund application’ attached.


Research Practice

 The Carnegie Teacher-Researcher Status enables schools to also be awarded the Carnegie Teacher-Researcher Standard based on their evidence of embedding research within their setting.  Training and support to develop a more focused and research orientated approach is available from Professor Carey Philpott who can be contacted for more information via or on 0113 812 3261.


Masters of Research – Professional Practice

 The Masters of Research – Professional Practice will be launched this November with further application rounds to be made available.   This innovative research award recognises achievements, skills and experience of candidates by enabling them to apply cutting edge research to critically reflect on their professional role and work.  Any NPQ graduate with Carnegie Leaders in Learning, is entitled to a 20% reduction off the fee and further information can be obtained from Dr Nick Sutcliffe via or on 0113 812 1771.


New Leadership workshops

We have launched three new workshops to support senior leaders aspiring for headship. The workshops are ‘Applying for your first headship’, ‘First 100 days in headship’ and ‘Effective coaching to develop staff and improve performance’. It would be very much appreciated if you could circulate these to interested alliance partners and colleagues.

If you would like any further details regarding any of these programmes or would like to discuss further, please contact:
