Shine has the experience and insight to support all of the aforementioned leaders to be successful and enthused in their roles whilst helping them to maximise their impact. 


We specialise in the development of NQT+1s, NQT+2s, Middle Leaders and Senior Leaders through local leadership development programmes. All of these programmes have six key features which ensure value for money and guarantee IMPACT on pupil outcomes:


  • 5 x face-to-face sessions between October and July (9:30am – 4:00pm)

  • An impact-focussed school-based leadership project (SBLP) which should be linked to a school development priority

  • A school-based Coach (selected by the school) who will facilitate a minimum of 5 coaching sessions for the participant

  • A training session for the school-based Coaches before the first face-to-face session. ‘How to be an effective Coach’ (2:00pm - 4:00pm in September)

  • Participants form their own local Leadership Trios. The aim is to share good practice through learning walks in each other’s schools. (Cross-phase trios encouraged)

  • A celebration twilight session for participants and coaches in July (4:30pm – 6:30pm)

“… I know we've said it already, but thank you again, for one of the most rewarding training programmes we've ever attended. We feel we’ve learnt so much (although there's still a lot to learn), and your coaching sessions have been quite a revelation! I hope and plan to continue the good work you've put in, making sure I give my coachees time, when I coach rather than lead or talk!

I would and will recommend your programme to anyone, as we've all got so much from it, and in different ways. I hope we will get the chance to work together in the future…"
