Succession Planning Update • Alan Sieber, NW NSC: • (email@example.com) • Governors • Voluntary Aided • National Society Conference 13 June at Manchester. • Dioceses: Carlisle, Blackburn, Liverpool, Manchester and Chester • Diversity & Inclusion • Rosemary Campbell-Stephens (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Succession Planning Update Diversity: Urgent collection of Diversity data needed. Data only needs to be for ethnicity and gender at this point, and data only for SLT is required. Where data may not be 100% reliable, this would be better than a nil return so it would be good to have whatever data or knowledge about the workforce that a LA has. The preferred method is to get as accurate picture as possible but at the same time we need to avoid nil returns.
Succession Planning Update Message from Simon Patten about the data community: Just to encourage you to visit the data community as we have had a couple of interesting comments in the last few days. It is good to see a bit of a dialogue getting going and what we need now is for NSCs and LA colleagues to come in and visit. The quick link to the community is: http://talk2learn.ncsl.org.uk//url/?JE0OU.
Succession Planning Update New NPQH update: A pack with information on the redesigned NPQH has been sent out to all schools. A full recruitment marketing strategy is to start post Easter, to publicise the application round for the first intake (May/June 08). NCSL will lead on national marketing, with providers having a regional role. (Please note: the current and redesigned NPQH programmes will run alongside each other for another year or so, but there will be no further marketing for the current NPQH, as the final intake has already been recruited). NSCs to receive a copy of this pack, as will the named LA contacts.
Succession Planning Update New NPQH update – placements: Verbal update.
Succession Planning Update Women into headship: Recent series of seminars on women into headship and media relations to support the research. Research conducted by ICM, that was used at the seminars is available online, and there’s a keynote speech by Marianne Coleman about overcoming barriers to headship. http://www.ncsl.org.uk/tomorrowsleaderstoday/aspiring/womenaspiring.cfm http://www.ncsl.org.uk/tomorrowsleaderstoday/about/women-leadership.cfm
Succession Planning Update Sharing data: NCSL are in a position to resume sharing NPQH data after the recent embargo. However, there may be problems in getting data through firewalls due to it needing to be encrypted. NCSL is still unable to provide LfTM data at this moment in time. We suggest that if LAs would like this data that they or NSCs should send in a request for it to email@example.com as this will strengthen our case for accessing this data. Formal note on data sharing will be circulated to NSCs soon.
