LLEs - Local Leaders of Education


If you would like to apply to become a LLE please click the tab to the right where you will be able to find the application form and supporting documents.

Find out Who We Are by clicking on the tab to the right.

Local Leaders of Education (LLE) are serving headteachers who have the capacity and capability to make a significant contribution to supporting schools in their local area.

As part of our move towards a school-led system, the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) will no longer designate LLEs, and instead we‘ll give teaching schools the freedom to recruit and designate school leaders in this role as they already do with specialist leaders of education (SLEs). (

If you are a serving head teacher and interested in becoming designated as an LLE or are an existing LLE looking to associate with a Teaching School, please contact us for further details. 

If you are an experienced head teacher or new to post and would like to ask one of our LLEs a question please contact us.  You can ask a specific question of an LLE by identifying in the email subject line the LLEs name.
