Local Leaders of Education (LLEs)

LLEs are experienced headteachers who coach or mentor new headteachers or headteachers whose schools are in challenging circumstances.  They work primarily one-to-one with another headteacher and typical activities include:

  • negotiating objectives for improvement
  • coaching and mentoring the headteacher to develop skills, judgement and professional effectiveness
  • supporting or arranging coaching or training for key staff in the supported school.

The following Teaching Schools have associated LLEs, use the links to access more information:
