The Impact of School Leadership Development: Evidence from the "New Visions" Programme for Early Headship
Bush, Tony; Briggs, Ann R. J.; Middlewood, David
Journal of In-service Education, v32 n2 p185-200 Jun 2006
This paper examines the impact of one leadership development programme, drawing on a model developed by Leithwood and Levin (2004) for the Department of Education and Skills. The New Visions programme, offered by the National College for School Leadership, is aimed at new headteachers and adopts a process rich approach to leadership development. The paper uses evidence from the authors' evaluation to show that the programme had a significant impact on participants' knowledge and skills, and on their leadership practices, but a more limited effect on classroom practice and pupil outcomes. (Contains 2 figures.)
