Succession Planning

DfE Recruitment and Retention Strategy - 2018/2019

As an LLE Rebecca Cox has been supporting schools who have difficulty retaining and attracting the rigt teachers into their schools. Through an application for grant funding from the DfE schools can access additional support in order to invest in their newly recruited, or new to teaching, staff so that they are fully supported in their early career stages so they are more likely to remain in the teaching profession.

Equality and  Diversity Grant - 2013 -2019

We have been fortunate to be awarded a grant for £25,000 over a number fo years to develop leadership potential for BME candidates and also men into primary and women into secondary leadership positions. Grants are available for groups of schools to address the challenges of equality and diversity in school leadership. Women and those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds are under represented in the school leadership workforce.

The unique programme devised by Hales Valley Teaching School gives candidates their own experienced mentor who will coach them through how to gain a leaderhip position in a school and a series of workshops will help them to reflect on their next steps into leadership.
