We have expertise at all levels of teachers, middle leaders, and support staff and at National Leaders of Education (NLE) level. We can offer a variety of support and relationships that can be built on a formal and sometimes informal level through coaching, mentoring and one to one support.
National Leaders of Education and Executive Principals
National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are Outstanding Principals / Headteachers who, together with staff in their schools (designated National Support Schools or Teaching Schools), use their skills and experience to support schools, often in challenging circumstances. Their main focus is to bring about School Leadership improvement and help raise standards.

Specialist Leaders of Education
Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are outstanding middle leaders who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of expertise looks like and are skilled in helping other leaders to achieve it in their own context.
The SLE role was created to help raise standards and improve the quality of school leadership through school-to-school support and peer-to-peer learning. This designation recognises the important role that senior and middle leaders play in improving schools and outcomes for children.
