The Diocesan Education Leaders Programme 2019–20

DEADLINE: Thursday, 31 January 2019

The Diocesan Education Leaders Programme (DELP) has been designed by the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership in partnership with Human Dimensions who work in collaboration with Trinity College, Bristol.

The programme is primarily open to current Directors of Education, Deputy DDEs and others seen as having the potential to move into these roles. All applicants will have obtained the endorsement of the Diocesan Board of Education and/or their Diocesan or suffrogan Bishop before submitting an application.

This programme will bring DDEs and aspiring DDEs together to learn from experts, learn from each other, and together leave a legacy of shared best practice.

This will be achieved through:
• Locating their role and practice as an expression of the Church of England’s vision for education and also as an expression of God’s work
• Nurturing both their personal and spiritual formation
• Reflecting on concepts, practices, and tools which enable effective leadership
• Contributing to the research and development of shared best practice among and across the DDE network

The programme will consist of three short residential workshops interspersed with five one-day action learning sets. Participants will also be involved in designing and completing a research project.

We are grateful to the All Churches Trust which has made a significant financial contribution to support the development and delivery of the programme for the first two cohorts.
