Leadership Courses


The Inspire Partnership has redesigned it's leadership professional learning offering for 2022. We have expanded our leadership programme to include 4 courses, bringing more focus and support to leaders of different levels. Most of the courses are a blended approach of in-person and virtual events, to help accommodate delegates travelling from across the UK. This also sparks opportunity for delegates to network and collaborate with others who are passionate about leading with excellence. 

Our course fees help cover the costs of speakers, facilities and further strengthening our CPD offering. However, as a Trust who is committed to improving the lives of all children, if you are interested in joining for one of our courses but feel the price may be a barrier, please don’t hesitate to contact us anyway to discuss a discounted rate.
