Aspiring to Middle Leadership

This is an Education Scotland leadership programme.

This prototype programme is designed to support aspiring middle leaders in developing their understanding of the roles of middle leadership and the skills required to carry out the key aspects of these roles.

Covid-19 update

In line with the advice and guidance from the Scottish and UK Governments, we have paused all professional learning and leadership activity including this programme. We have prepared a set of frequently asked questions which we hope will answer some of the questions you may have at this time. We will update these with additional information as we have it.

Read our FAQs for information on changes to our programmes as a result of Covid-19.

What are the benefits?

Participants will engage in self-evaluation to determine their next steps in their professional learning. They will also develop confidence and experience in the use of action learning sets as a structured method to address complicated issues by working collaboratively.

This is a facilitated learning session which provides valuable opportunities for participants to learn about ongoing support in their leadership journey as well as providing the time to create new links with colleagues from different sectors and local authorities.

Who is it for?

Teachers who aspire to a middle leadership post.


The programme is a one-day facilitated learning session held in various locations throughout Scotland.
