Equality and Diversity Leadership Fund

About the Fund

The fund is provided by the DfE.  It exists to supports school-led projects which aim to increase diversity in school leadership. Projects can address any of the following protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race and/or sex.

Schools can design their own programmes to meet their own local needs, for example, through targeted coaching, mentoring and/or development sessions for those currently under represented in leadership roles.

Schools (and groups of schools) can apply for grants of up to £10,000 from the Leadership Equality and Diversity Fund. More may be available for larger scale projects.

Northern Lights TSA is coordinating the funding of projects in two RSC regions: the North of England and also East Midlands & the Humber.
