Leadership Equality and Diversity Fund

“We want to see a teaching profession that prides itself on promoting a diverse workforce, that supports the progression and retention of all teachers, and that builds an inclusive environment for teachers and pupils where they can be themselves.”

Northern Lights Teaching School is the hub for management of the DfE Leadership Equality and Diversity Fund for two regions: North and East Midlands & The Humber.  The fund exists to support school-led programmes within those regions which encourage a more diverse range of individuals to consider seeking promotion to school leadership roles.

We are currently accepting applications to the fund from schools (or groups of schools) in the North region. Applications to the fund for East Midlands & The Humber are currently closed, although a further funding round may open in October.

These pages are for schools that are planning to make an application and also schools who have already received a grant for 2019/20.
