Local Leader of Learning

I am extremely proud to have gained the accreditation of LLE- Local Leader of Learning.

This gives me the opportunity to support colleagues in schools across our Trust and beyond in terms of leadership and capacity. I have proven success in this area and welcome the opportunity to share our expertise at Bramley Park Academy across the educational landscape.


Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) are outstanding middle and senior leaders who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar roles in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of expertise looks like and are skilled in helping others to achieve it in their own context. SLEs are able to undertake a range of activities; delivering workshops, school to school support work, delivering professional development, audits, diagnostics, working one on one with staff.


Local Leaders of Education provide a range of school-to-school support and coaching and mentoring for head teachers. LLEs are successful headteachers who work alongside other school leaders to drive forward improvements and build capacity to ensure that improvements can be sustained.

The role of the LLE is to work outside their own school, providing support to another headteacher and their school with the aim of school improvement. The role is flexible and based on context and may involve:

  • Coaching and supporting a new Headteacher who would benefit from assistance in the transition period to maintain momentum in their school’s improvement
  • Offering peer challenge and support to a Headteacher to ensure impact in school improvement strategies
  • Conducting a diagnostic assessment to gain understanding of the extent of a school needs
  • Providing focused support to a school identified through the inspection framework as ‘requires improvement’ or vulnerable to under-performance
