The Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership

The Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership brings together a wide range of educational partners, dedicated to supporting the development of leaders in education working towards a vision for education based on a Christian view of 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10).

They work to resource leaders at all levels of the education system by offering:

  • Networks: Bringing leaders together regionally to support, challenge and inspire each other, through collaboration, coaching and conferences
  • Programmes: Equipping school and system leaders with the wisdom, knowledge and skills to realise their vision for education.
  • Research: Ensuring leaders have access to a strong evidence base for their work through a depth of thinking and reflection on leadership, pedagogy and theology

Through these 3 core strands, the Foundation aims to create and resource a movement of dynamic and creative leaders who are equipped and encouraged to support each other’s development, synergising the best in pedagogical and leadership thinking with rich theological reflection and personal development. Regional peer support networks provide the opportunity for schools of all shapes and sizes to work together to support each other’s development through rich pedagogical and theological reflection, through a wide range of regional, national and international events and connections.
