Eligibility Criteria

To apply for the Big Leadership Adventure, you must meet the following requirements:

You are currently working in the education sector; either as a Middle, Senior leader or (Executive) Headteacher of a school(s) in the UK, or as a leader in a business of social enterprise.  If you are currently working independently and not with a team, please get in touch to discuss whether the programme is suitable for you.

You are committed to attending 80% of the programme delivery; this includes approx. 11 days (8 weekdays and 3 Saturdays) in year one, and less days overall in year two.

You and your organisation (if applicable) are willing for you to work on potential areas of innovation in the workplace.

You have the buy-in and support of your school or organisation, enabling you the release time to participate as above. The Headteacher or Chief Executive (if that’s not you) should be engaged in the programme.

You and/or your organisation are in a position to cover the cost of the programme, (£5,000 for two-years).

You are willing to travel to the face to face elements of the programme, either in London or a central location in the North of England (tbc).

You are comfortable with using video conferencing applications, such as Zoom and Google Meet. Please get in touch if this is a concern for you.

You are aligned with Big Education’s mission and vision.

In school settings, we encourage more than one leader to apply as we believe this has the potential to create a greater, lasting impact,  developing a Big Education school.
