Head of School Leadership Programme

People First


"Let’s not underestimate the importance of leadership and, indeed the value of leadership development. We are operating in a highly competitive, global marketplace; we need leaders within Queen’s to be creative, strategic and able to operate effectively in a highly complex landscape"

One of the key commitments in the People and Culture Strategy, People First is to build the skills, confidence and capacity of our leadership community. To enable this, we launched the Leadership and Management Framework in April 2019 to set out clearly the responsibilities and behaviours involved in being a leader at Queen’s. The Framework underpins our leadership development opportunities.

In direct response to feedback from our Head of School Community, we have partnered with Elementa Leadership to provide a bespoke Leadership Development Programme for our Heads of Schools and Centre/Institute Directors.

In line with Covid 19 pandemic government advice, our face to face learning and development delivery has been paused. We continue to offer some programmes online, where relevant.

Our delivery dates for our Head of School Programme (Elementa facilitated sessions) have been updated and are available here.

Our supporting knowledge sessions, on internal processes and governance, specifically designed to support those in a Head of School/Centre Director role, and facilitated by our Queen’s experts in these areas, will be scheduled for a later date. See below for session descriptors under Knowledge Sessions.
