Following a successful pilot of Level 1 of the HMC Pastoral Leadership Qualification (PLQ), HMCPD will be running four Level 1 clusters in 2017-18, along with a single Level 2 pilot cluster.
The PLQ is designed for pastoral leaders in HMC schools e.g. Heads of Year, Heads of Section, Heads of House (Boarding and Day), Heads of Pupil Support teams etc. Whilst aspiring pastoral leaders may also take part, the training sessions and portfolio activities are primarily intended for those already in post, and HMCPD’s ‘Preparing to be a Pastoral Leader’ is likely to provide more appropriate content. Experienced colleagues who are beginning to consider deputy head positions may also find HMCPD’s ‘Preparing for Senior Leadership’ course of interest.
Please view the PLQ briefing document for more information.
