Bradford Birth to 19 TSA Local Leaders of Education (LLE)

The designation of Local Leaders of Education (LLE) now lies with Teaching Schools in the same way that Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) are accredited locally. This is a nationally recognised status alligned to a specific Teaching School. We welcome headteachers with the experience and track record required to join our group of LLEs.

Applications are prepared by the headteacher seeking designation and then submitted to a panel of leaders from the partnership to consider. We will hold the records of the designation which may be subject to scrutiny by the NCTL or related organisations.

Before you apply

Potential applicants must review the eligibility criteria before applying. These are not flexible; to apply you must meet the criteria and have the capacity to support orther schools. Designation is a commitment to contribute to the school-led system upon securing the status.
