Bespoke and targeted support at individual, departmental or leadership level

School to School Support

Engage with others on an equal footing, recognising that we can learn from each other.

NELTA has a proven track record of working with other schools and the capacity and integrity to undertake support for schools in challenging circumstances. Our approach is collaborative.
Our support is bespoke and targeted.

NELTA has a great deal of expertise in every area, from improving the quality of teaching to leadership coaching, behaviour management, policies and systems, successful data tracking and intervention, curriculum design, timetabling, preparation for Ofsted, financial management and individual subject support.

NELTA effectively draws on capacity from across its strategic partners to undertake school-to-school support.

  • NLEs are outstanding Headteachers who, together with the staff in their schools, use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances or schools that would like some expert advice. We lead the management and co-ordination of S2SS through identification of individuals with management responsibilities for negotiating contracts and undertaking quality assurance activities.
  • We have a number of talented staff at all levels across the alliance who work with colleagues and leaders in other schools. These are ‘Project Leaders/Professional Development Consultants’.
  • We have also appointed a number of SLEs and Professional Development Consultants to the alliance. All have attended SLE Core training and are available for deployment. Please click on the SLE tab to find out more about SLEs.

We are equipped and committed to providing a personalized, yet robust, support package within the Secondary school sector.
