We are committed to sharing Leadership for Learning work as broadly and deeply as possible in order to achieve maximum impact for children and their educators and families around the world. With the support of funding from the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account Pilot Programme, we are currently developing a number of both high and low tech resources to disseminate and support LfL work.

This includes:

  • identifying and documenting projects across the world that are working with the LfL framework and principles
  • scoping the impact of LfL in these settings
  • sharing knowledge from these and our own programmes through a range of new dissemination approaches

We are currently in conversation with network members working with more than 18 projects across the world actively using the LfL principles and framework. Offered below are two short films of our colleagues Neil Dempster (Griffith University, Australia) and Susan Lovett (University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand), sharing insights from their own contexts. We are currently working with colleagues on a new publication about this work.

Drawing on these interviews, and with other colleagues around the world, our recent InForm (which can also be read online) provides accounts of the impact of the Carpe Vitam Leadership for Learning project.

An LfL Fan has been produced. This innovative hand-held resource captures the key principles and framework elements of the model on a series of petals that can be arranged to stimulate debate and reflection when working alongside colleagues. The prototype was tested with colleagues in Ghana and the initial production run of 3,000 will be distributed to support schools associated with the LfL Ghana programme.
