Welcome to the Regional Training Unit

"When leaders stop developing so also do their staff and when staff stop learning so also do their pupils"

These are the sentiments which inform and motivate the work of the Regional Training Unit (RTU) in Northern Ireland as a developer of current and future school and education sector leaders.

RTU supports the professional development of leaders and senior managers in all schools in Northern Ireland. This includes the emergent/middle leader, those leaders aspiring to a first headship position, as well as serving heads, senior school leaders and education leaders and managers. RTU presently has over 130 trainee head teachers on their developmental journey through PHQ.
