Local Leaders

Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) are successful Headteachers who work outside their own school, providing support and coaching to another Headteacher and their school with the aim of improving pupil outcomes through partnership working between schools and academies.

LLEs also act as professional partners, providing mentor support to new Headteachers in their first two years of headship as part of the Head Start programme.
