We are a small independent organisation established by the Welsh Government as part of commitments made in the government’s “Education in Wales: Our national mission” action plan. The National Academy for Educational Leadership will be a fundamental part of the education landscape.
Our mission is “Inspiring Leaders: Enriching Lives” with the aim of bringing clarity and coherence to educational leadership in Wales. Through our work we will ensure that practitioners are able to engage with the most relevant, meaningful and inspiring professional learning. The challenge set out for us by the OECD, Estyn and also the profession was to ensure a whole-system approach to leadership, and make it a prime driver of education reform.
We are committed to the two principles of
- equity of access to provision, and
- provision that is of the highest quality.
We are focused on enabling the leadership of learning. We will do this by embodying our values in all we do.
