National Leaders of Education (NLEs)
NLEs are outstanding headteachers who work with schools in challenging circumstances to support school improvement. Because their support role will often include members of their own staff, the school of a national leader of education is called a national support school.
They can get involved in different ways, including:
- working with your school alongside their staff
- working with your school on their own
- their staff working with your school under their initial direction
