National leaders of education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools and partnerships, use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.

What’s involved?

Once recruited onto the programme, you and your school will work with schools and academies in the most challenging of circumstances. What’s involved will depend on what is required by the school in need of support. Each deployment is negotiated separately with the relevant local authority or appropriate commissioning body.

The application round is currently closed.
