Cultural Leadership in Education

Culture Bridge North East and the Newcastle University North Leadership Centre are delighted to offer a two-day programme that will develop the knowledge and skills you need to lead the cultural offer in your school. The programme will be led by a cultural arts practitioner and a facilitator with expertise in school leadership. Sessions will run at the Darlington Hippodrome, lunch is included.

Alongside the sessions, you will run a small-scale project focused on leading an aspect of change in your school, including an action plan and impact evaluation.
