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.
