Standards for Leaders

Professional Standards for Leaders working in the Further Education and Training sector have now been developed.

The Standards were developed in 2021 using feedback from the sector and informed by research. They are designed to provide guidance for you and your organisation about professional expectations of leadership roles, as well as to help identify where relevant high-quality training is needed to support future and existing leaders.

There are four sets of standards which recognise different expectations for different levels of leadership:

  • Aspiring Leaders
  • Middle Leaders
  • Senior Leaders
  • CEOs/Principals

The Professional Standards for Leaders uses a similar structure to the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in order to highlight the synergies and distinctions between the roles.

You can find out more about the new Professional Standards for Leaders from The Education and Training Foundation website.

Resources mapping the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers to the career development of practitioners have also been released by the Education and Training Foundation. You can find out more about these here
