Senior leaders in ESFA-funded organisations can now access mentoring support to assist them with current challenges and further leadership development. The support, which is funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and delivered by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF), is available to CEOs and Principals, Finance Directors, and senior leaders with BAME backgrounds.
Mentors will work in a flexible way in terms of both timings and the choice of topics the mentee wishes to discuss. It is independent and confidential.
If you are interested in taking up this offer, please email ETF Performance Manager Apinder Sidhu: email@example.com.
The mentoring is offered as part of the ETF’s remit to provide sector workforce development. The DfE is funding these programmes because it understands that senior leaders and Principals will be facing multiple challenges as a result of the Covid pandemic.
For details of the ETF’s wider support offer for leaders please visit the leadership hub on the ETF website.
