Why we do it

Inspiring Leaders passionately believes that great Teachers and Leaders have the power to transform children’s lives. By utilising the experience and expertise of practicing leaders of today, we endeavour to develop confident, ethical and aspirational school Teachers and Leaders of the future. Inspiring Leaders places the following values at the heart of our work:


We are a community of Schools and Academy Trusts working together with a shared commitment to transforming pupils’ lives. We recognise the power high quality Teacher development has on making this a reality.


Our partners work together closely and support each other in their development. We ensure that mutual respect is developed between learners in all our programmes.


We know that to be successful schools need be innovative and take risks. We are committed to ‘looking beyond’ our usual boundaries in pursuit of excellence.


Our programmes are led by leaders from within our partnerships who have expertise and experience in designing and leading adult learning. We are committed to providing the best possible learning opportunities to all participants.


Our leaders are committed to working together to benefit the wider system of teachers and leaders.
