4) BEP Space

Part of BEP Hub, BEP Space offers serving Headteachers reflective space and personal and professional support. BEP Space believes all Headteachers deserve respect, care and support and that we all need to keep on learning, even if it’s only learning to cope with the change that is happening around us and that so often seems out of our control. We recognise that the role of a Headteacher is uniquely stressful as dedicated, passionate educators juggle the often conflicting demands they face daily. We realise that often all that ‘stuff’ and all those external pressures can seem to get in the way of the job of changing and improving the young lives that brought you here in the first place.

BEP Space will help you manage that ‘stuff’, stay ahead of what’s happening nationally and most important, help you reconnect with what brought you into Headship in the first place. It will offer time for reflection and safe space to talk about tough issues. BEP Space can also help you think about your personal career choices and whether and when – or if – you really do want to move on. And if moving on is also about moving up, to Executive Head or CEO, then BEP Space offers unique, personalised, locally based programmes to offer you any new skills you feel you need.
