About HMC Professional Development

HMCPD organises around 65 courses and conferences each year for HMC Heads and their staff. Events are organised in six domains, from suites of courses designed for aspiring middle leaders to those for recently appointed and more experienced Heads.

This approach reflects HMC’s commitment to support leadership development at all levels in HMC schools. HMCPD's provision offers support for those interested in career progression through the six stages of the HMC ‘Leadership Journey’ and professional development opportunities for those wishing to develop their professional practice further.

The HMC Leadership Journey

Courses and Conferences are organised in six sections: events for those Preparing for Middle Leadership (PML), those interested in Developing Middle Leadership (DML), those focusing on Preparing for Senior Leadership (PSL), those interested in Developing Senior Leadership (DSL), those who are Preparing for Headship (PH) and those interested in Developing Headship (DH).
