About us

Teaching Leaders and The Future Leaders Trust are two leading not-for-profit organisations with a common mission to transform the life chances of children by building a movement of exceptional leaders at all levels in schools in challenging contexts. In June 2016 we announced our intention to join forces and form one organisation. We share an ambitious vision that every child fulfils their potential regardless of background and a belief that great school leaders at all levels are the key to achieving this. From 1 November 2016 we will operate as one unified, stronger organisation and are seeking skilled and driven people with a passion for social justice to join our workforce. The strategy and culture emerging from our union is vibrant, bold and dynamic and will make us major players in the education sector. This is certainly an exciting time to join us! Read more about our integration.
