The mission of school leaders is to put the Catholic vision for education into effect. The Middle Leaders Programme will establish the main building blocks of successful leadership, meeting the needs of those who wish to develop their experience and impact at wider school leadership, maximise their skills and effectiveness.

The Middle Leadership Programme has been designed to provide high quality leadership development for those  people already working, or seeking to work in Roman Catholic schools.

At the heart of the programme is the emphasis on how values are conveyed at all levels of leadership within Roman Catholic schools, as well as specific leadership strategies that will help raise achievement.
