The school improvement specialists

Leadership development

Here at B11 we understand the pressure that leaders at all levels are under to drive school improvement. We have a range of exceptionally skilled school improvement advisers who are experienced at working alongside school leaders to support their professional development and to help them to maximise the impact of their roles. We can support aspiring or newly appointed leaders, as well as those who are established in their roles but require an external eye to enhance their practice. Our services are flexible to suit your needs, but examples of what we provide include:
