CatholicLinks Leadership Programmes have their origins in the period when the National College for School Leadership was dominant in providing quality leadership programmes for school leaders at various levels of leadership. Margaret Buck, a former Director of Schools of the Diocesan Schools Commission for the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham, was active for almost twenty years with the National College, in facilitating, tutoring, assessing, writing and planning leadership programmes to provide for early leaders through to senior leadership teams and headteachers. Her experiences included tutoring Catholic cohorts on ‘Leading from the Middle’, ‘Leadership Pathways’ and the ‘National Professional Qualification for Headship’, as well as writing a half-module for NPQH. She also wrote a suite of Catholic leadership programmes known as the CatholicLinks Leadership Programmes which she has passed on to us.
Now we are the force behind the CatholicLinks Leadership Programmes.
We are pleased to have taken on the strategic and operational management of the CatholicLinks suite of leadership programmes. We act as both the licensed provider and as facilitators of the programmes.
