School to School Support


Across the alliance we have a team of experts that are available to provide bespoke support packages to individuals, schools or departments based on the priorities for your school. We can work with you to identify appropriate strategies or interventions for your school, or we can share our expertise of having dealt with a similar situation in a different context.

This support can be provided by National or Specialist Leaders of Education (NLE/SLE) or by our Lead Teachers.

Typically, NLEs will work with the headteacher or principal and SLEs/Lead teachers will work with middle and/or senior leaders to undertake the following:

• Carry out diagnostic visits.
• Develop action plans, identifying key priorities and SMART targets.
• Provide one-to-one or group support.
• Offer coaching and mentoring support.
• Provide access to resources and training. 

The ultimate aim of NLEs and SLEs will always be to contribute significantly to improving the outcomes for children through developing the capacity of peer leaders in other schools.

Please visit the National College website for more information about the roles of NLEs and SLEs To register your interest in any of our school-to-school support provisions please contact us directly at
