National Leaders of Education (NLEs)

National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools (designated national support schools (NSS)), use their skills and experience to support schools experiencing particular challenges or difficulties. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.

NLEs work alongside teaching schools and other system leaders to provide high quality support to those who need it most.
