Formatio, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation working to form, nourish and sustain leaders of Catholic education, has established an Executive Leadership Formation Programme in partnership with the Catholic Education Service, the Catholic Independent Schools’ Conference and EducareM.
The programme is aimed at those leading, or aspiring to lead, two to four Catholic schools and will focus on faith formation and professional development in the context of the relatively new and evolving role of executive leadership.
The programme features input from experienced executive headteachers, area specialists and other stakeholders and will take place over two residential events during the 2019/20 academic year:
Residential 1: 18th-20th November 2019 | Residential 2: 12th-13th February 2020
The programme is being held at the beautiful Stanbrook Abbey Hotel, Worcester, the home to the Second English Benedictine Congregation of Nuns from 1838 to 2009.
The total cost of the programme is £800 per delegate.
