NASONHT - ADDITIONAL SUPPORT OFFER FOR NEW HEAD TEACHERS
The aim of the NPQH Additional Support Offer for New Head Teachers (NASONHT) is to provide structured, unassessed face-to-face support based on the best available evidence about what makes an effective head teacher.
The additional support offer is suitable for new head teachers who have taken the reformed NPQH or will be taking the NPQH in their first two years in role (the ‘NPQH Additional Support Offer for New Head Teachers’). This is a targeted package of support tailored to the needs of Teachers new to the role of headship.
While one main focus of the new NPQH is on helping participants to ‘think like leaders’, the NASONHT is intended as a complementary programme that focuses on helping participants to ‘act like leaders’. Therefore, NASONHT is seen as the meaning-making phase of self-reflection, observations, analysis of one’s leadership and development as well as its impact on the school and the school improvement process.
