National Leader of Education (NLEs)
NLEs are outstanding headteachers, executive headteachers and CEOs who work with schools in challenging circumstances to support school improvement.
Because their support role often includes members of their own staff, the school of a national leader of education is known as 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
