Teaching Leaders is an innovative charity, which sets out to measurably raise levels of pupil achievement in schools working in challenging contexts through developing outstanding middle leaders (i.e. heads of department, heads of year and other whole-school roles).
We were developed in partnership with four of the UK’s most forward-thinking educational organisations: the National College, ARK, Teach First and Future Leaders.
The TL Fellows Programme was launched in 2008 with an inaugural cohort of 30 in inner London schools. Five years later we’ve developed a modular programme(TL Teams) and we’re now working with almost 444 secondary schools across England; 243 of which have supported our network of 776 Fellows and Alumni through our flagship TL Fellows Programme. In response to the challenges facing primary schools, in 2014, TL developed a bespoke leadership development programme called TL Primary for 1,200 teachers in partnership with NAHT, CfBT and primary heads from across the country.

Development Coaches: North of England, South of England and the Midlands
Teaching Leaders is seeking new Development Coaches across England. TL Fellows work in schools in challenging contexts, and have been selected through a rigorous application and assessment process. The Development Coach role is a two-year commitment supporting high potential middle leaders on our Fellows Programme to improve student outcomes in their departments or areas of responsibility. Senior leadership experience in a challenging secondary school is a requirement for this role. The Development Coach role is open to both currently serving and former senior school leaders.
Coaching is a crucial and central part of Fellows’ experience and development. Development Coaches are the link between the curriculum and training delivered on the programme and the school context, supporting Fellows to incorporate this learning into their practice as middle leaders. Coaching is the most personalised element of the programme, allowing Fellows to see a direct impact within their roles, their leadership and consequently in outcomes for their students.
We require that our coaches have: experience of working as a senior leader/headteacher in a secondary school in challenging contexts, adaptability to employ a variety of coaching models and techniques, a commitment to your own development as a coach and an enthusiasm for developing others.
