Every child should have equal opportunities in education and in life.

We believe it will take a movement of leaders across society who are committed to ending educational inequality to make this vision a reality.

Our Leadership Development Programme (LDP) combines teacher training and a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Education (worth twice the credits of a PGCE) with one-to-one coaching, enabling you to develop the skills and qualities to be a leader in the classroom and beyond.
