Leadership Equality and Diversity Fund: for school-led programmes

06 September 2016

The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) is inviting lead schools, on behalf of groups or alliances of schools to apply for grant funding to design and deliver leadership programmes.

Currently, only 3.1% of headteachers are from black and minority ethnic groups (compared to 7.6% of all teachers) and at secondary, just 38.2% of headteachers are female (compared to 73.8% of all classroom teachers). (Source: School Workforce in England: November 2015 statistical first release).

The funding will support under-represented groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010. Teachers participating in your programme can be at any stage in their career. There is no upper limit on the number of participants, value of grant and cost per participant. For more information and to apply see online.
