Diverse Leaders for Tomorrow

This programme has been developed to tackle equality and diversity challenges and is for BME leaders aspiring to their next stage promoted leadership roles.

Participants will learn from each other and develop their effectiveness as leaders on a programme where they are in the majority. It explores the challenges and refines the existing tools of school leadership and school improvement to address issues of inequality.

The programme also offers the opportunity for BME aspiring leaders to network, work collaboratively and receive peer support, guided by an outstanding regional team of Black leaders who are cognisant of the barriers to promotion that exist for BME professionals. 

Who is this for? 

This is a positive action programme targeted at teachers are from BME background and:

  • have been in teaching for at least 3 years
  • who are looking to move into leadership role in the next 6-12 months
  • who work in a state funded school within the Lancashire & West Yorkshire region (if you work outside this region please contact us)


The Diverse Leaders for Tomorrow is funded by the DfE Leadership Equality and Diversity Fund (L&WY)
