Mr Darren Beardsley and St. Mary’s Menston staff chosen for top roles supporting schools in challenging circumstances
The Headteacher and staff at St. Mary’s School have been selected for top roles supporting schools in challenging circumstances and training new teachers.
Mr Beardsley is one of more than 75 Headteachers to be appointed to the role of National Leader of Education in the latest recruitment round.
National Leaders of Education, along with staff in their school – appointed as National Support Schools – use their knowledge and experience to provide additional leadership capability in other schools in need of support.
The type of support provided is flexible and tailored to meet the needs of each individual school. National Leaders of Education also have responsibility for developing the next generation of NLE’s and national support schools.
The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) has responsibility for the appointment of NLE’s and the quality of the NLE programme. There are now over 1,250 NLE’s across England.
Successful Headteachers will be invited to attend a national induction event.
