COBIS Programme for Middle Leaders (CPML)

More than 100 Middle Leaders took part in the COBIS Programme for Middle Leaders in 2021/22. In 2022/23, cohorts are expected to run in Bucharest, Chesières, Doha, Munich, Muscat, Riyadh, Rome, and Ulaanbaatar (other locations to be confirmed).
Cohorts in Bucharest, Chesières, Doha, Muscat, Riyadh, Rome, and Ulaanbaatar will accept external bookings. 

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 six 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
