A safe space in which to relax and connect with other HTs.

These zoom calls are supportive, friendly and informal. In these facilitated sessions you will be invited to reflect on your week, share the successes and challenges.  You can be assured of support from others in the meeting. We are here to lift each other up! If you would prefer to listen – that’s fine too!

We offer free peer support sessions for headteachers; aspiring, serving and former!

Note: we use the same Zoom link each week. If you already have the link, there is no need to use the Sign Up option.

Who do you turn to in challenging times?

Your union will provide technical support but what about the emotional support?  Our offer to you is the chance to speak to someone. All conversations are confidential and free with a trained HeadsUp coach who is either a former or current Headteacher – so they get it!


Longer term support for HTs

Our Crisis Coaching support is intended to be short term (we find that 2-3 sessions are often enough to provide the support needed).  If you would like a longer term coaching relationship we can connect you to excellent coaches within the HeadsUp network.  You can discuss with them what your requirements are and make the arrangements for an on-going coaching relationship.

Career Advice and Support

If you're thinking 'what next?'

Your skills and experiences are invaluable to education and to other sectors. We can provide you with advice and guidance on what you do next with your career and, where appropriate, connecting you to our partner organisations for further support and guidance.
