Star Institute supports professional development across all leadership roles in schools, academies and children’s centres, from leading a team to leading beyond an organisation. These include Trustees, Governors, CEOs of MATs, Executive Headteachers, Headteachers, Senior Leaders, Middle Leaders and aspiring leaders.

The Institute offers the opportunity to study a range of qualifications that provide national recognition of leadership development and professional achievement. We also provide flexible and bespoke leadership development support to meet a school or academy’s individual needs and drive school improvement priorities. We specialise in talent development and succession planning and aim to develop the future leaders to meet the most pressing needs across the sector. Programmes are shaped for and by school leaders and underpinned by international research and thinking.
