COBIS Programme for Middle Leaders (CPML)

Nearly 100 Middle Leaders took part in the COBIS Programme for Middle Leaders in 2022/23. In 2023/24, cohorts are expected to run in Bucharest, Cayman Islands, Lagos, Mumbai, Munich, Muscat, Riyadh, Rome and Stockholm.
Cohorts in Bucharest, Cayman Islands, Lagos, Mumbai, Muscat, Riyadh, Rome, and Stockholm will accept external bookings. Additional locations may be added.

Key points about the CPML:

  • A 1-year programme for ambitious middle leaders who wish to develop their personal and professional skills
  • A blended learning approach with facilitated workshops and self-directed learning, including five days of face-to-face training events
  • In addition to completing eight modules, participants design, implement and evaluate a Leadership Challenge project within their own school context
  • Participants develop their professional network with other COBIS colleagues

“This has been transformational not just for the delegates who are on the course, but for the whole school community.” - CPML Facilitator
