Local Leaders of Education (LLEs)
LLEs are successful headteachers who are able to support other headteachers or senior leaders to achieve sustainable school improvement through one-to-one coaching and mentoring.
Benefits of using an LLE
The precise role of the LLE is flexible and varies depending on the context but the schools most likely to benefit from LLE support are where the Headteacher or senior leader:
• Would benefit from peer challenge and support to ensure impact in key improvement priorities
• Is looking to develop fresh perspectives on issues presenting considerable challenge
• Is new to leadership and would benefit from assistance in the transition period to maintain momentum in their school’s improvement
