Twilight Professional Development for Senior, Middle and Aspiring Leaders. 

What are others saying?

"Using Micorah has been a very wise decision. Deborah has delivered several programmes to our middle leaders that have not only been effective in dev​eloping the knowledge and skills that were necessary, but that we have also been able to shape to our bespoke needs. This is the most cost-effective training I have come across and I highly recommend it." 

John Connelly, Deputy Head Teacher, William Brookes School.

Costs and Information. 


All courses, mentoring and coaching is delivered in your school or in a school within your MAT. I would require a quiet, comfortable room large enough to hold the group, and digital projection.


Courses can be delivered during twilight sessions, CPD sessions or non-contact time during the day. This can be agreed according to need. Course sessions can be spread out on a weekly or two weekly basis to allow time to practise strategies in between. 

How many trainees?

To maintain the ethos of trust, team work and a safe place to be challenged and take risks, groups should be no more than ten in number.
