National Leaders of Education (NLE)
NLEs are outstanding head teachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools (designated national support schools (NSS) or Teaching Schools), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.
Within the Coastal Teaching Schools Alliance we have one NLEs:
