Our NLEs

National Leaders of Education

National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools (designated National Support Schools (NSS), 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.

BTSA currently has 2 NLEs available for deployment.

School to school support is not a "one size fits all" and we work with you to tailor that support to the needs of your school and circumstances. Our primary function is to deploy and broker support from SLEs/NLEs/LLEs/NLGs.

If you would like to explore the school to school support services, then please do not hesitate to contact us. 

You can find our recent testimonials and case studies here.
