Welcome to Leadership for Learning
A vibrant network dedicated to leadership, learning and their inter-connection.
Leadership. Learning. Two ideas at the heart of education. Both are complex, open to widely differing interpretations and the subject of continuing debate among academics, policy-makers and practitioners. The LfL network is concerned with both concepts and particularly with their connection, seeking to understand and share knowledge about leadership in education that supports learning.

Regional School Commissioners and England’s school system: state-funded but developed and managed in private?
Tuesday 14th October 2014, 5pm - 7pm, Room GS5, Donald McIntyre Building, Faculty of Education
Education journalist, Warwick Mansell, is our guest at the next LfL Supper Seminar in October 2014. This supper seminar will consider what seems to have been the Department for Education’s central concern since the coalition came to power in 2010: the drive to get as many schools as possible to become academies. Specifically, it will focus on the recent, hardly discussed, development of a new form of school organisation - the Regional Schools Commissioner system, which will oversee all academies and free schools from September - to ask questions about transparency and public accountability. More details.
All welcome. Free to attend. Wine and nibbles served. Please email email@example.com to register.
