Endorsed Leadership Provision

Endorsement from the National Academy for Educational Leadership demonstrates that the provision has met the high standards set out in the endorsement criteria through a rigorous peer led two stage process.

Endorsement assures leaders that the provision is underpinned by international evidence on what makes effective leadership and will have a positive impact on outcomes for learners.

Educational leaders in Wales are operating in challenging, unpredictable circumstances and understand that innovative systems, tools and thinking are essential. We support innovation through:

An Innovation Pathway fund where new leadership provision can be developed through new thinking and actions.

Annual Innovation workshops to stimulate innovative thinking and action among educational leaders.
