Leaders in Education

TELA’s members include three National Support Schools headed up by National Leaders in Education, as well as a team of Specialist Leaders in Education, Local Leaders in Education, and one National Leader of Governance, who can all be deployed into schools requiring support. 


TELA offers school to school support in a variety of ways, which can be accessed by schools inside and outside the alliance. School to school support ranges from focus visits/lesson observation involvement, through  leadership support and specific project work, to full NLE deployment action plans targeted at moving to a higher OFSTED category.


TELA is currently officially supporting nine Leicestershire secondary and primary schools and a group of schools in South Yorkshire. There are also a variety of informal support programmes on offer, as well as a developing Peer Review programme led by Ofsted-trained senior leaders.




Additional Support

The School-to-School Support Team also includes a range of other Senior and Middle Leaders with varying specialisms.
