Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) have made and continue to make a significant contribution to supporting schools since the programme was introduced in 2008. LLEs provide a range of school-to-school support and coaching and mentoring for head teachers.

Teaching schools recruit and designate school leaders in this role as they already do with specialist leaders of education (SLEs).
NCTL will continue to designate national leaders of education (NLE) and their National Support Schools (NSS) to ensure that there is sufficient high quality school-to-school support to enable schools everywhere, particularly those under-performing or coasting, to access the support they need to improve.
