National and Local Leaders of Education (NLEs and LLEs) are system leaders who work with schools outside their own.

The aim of NLEs and LLEs is to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards. They form one part of the government’s plan to give schools a central role in developing a self-improving and sustainable school system.

NLEs and LLEs carefully tailor their work to the needs of the schools they work with.

Star Institute works with many NLEs and LLEs in a range of capacities and maintains a school-to-school support directory for people looking to commission the services of NLEs and LLEs.
