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.
