Women's leadership development

A series of engagement events were carried out by the Controlled Schools’ Support Council (CSSC) in March 2017. 

During these events, female participants outlined their concerns at the lack of support they received in terms of applying for leadership positions and subsequently as they progressed in their career.  They articulated that they often felt isolated with no or limited resources available to them for advice and encouragement.

In order to explore these issues and provide leadership support and guidance, CSSC held an event on 8 March 2018 to look at and discuss issues, challenges and solutions facing women in leadership positions in education. 

A report summarising the outcomes from the event was produced.  This report, ‘Realising your potential - Women’s leadership in controlled schools’ recommended that CSSC should hold a series of events to develop the leadership capacity of female school leaders in controlled schools.
