Our System Leaders

Our System Leaders

National Leaders of Education ( NLEs ) are strong school leaders, who have experience of effectively supporting schools in challenging circumstances. NLEs work alongside teaching schools and other system leaders to provide high quality support to those who need it most. We have one primary NLE within our alliance.

Local Leaders of Education (LLE) are serving headteachers who have the capacity and capability to make a significant contribution to supporting schools in their local area. As part of the DfE’s move to establish a self-improving, school-led system, teaching schools now have the freedom to recruit and designate school leaders in this role.

Lead practitioners  (LPs) are practising outstanding teachers who are able to provide practical support to colleagues, using strategies including modelling practice, lesson study and coaching. It essentially replaces the previous advanced skills teacher (AST). We are currently recruiting and training LPs.
