Neale-Wade Academy principal Jason Wing lands national leader of education role
The principal and staff at a March school have been selected for top roles supporting schools in challenging circumstances and training new teachers.
Jason Wing, principal at the Neale-Wade Academy, was picked as one of more than 75 head teachers to be appointed to the role of national leader of education (NLE) in the latest recruitment round.
National leaders of education along with staff in their school – appointed as national support schools – use their knowledge and experience to provide additional leadership capability in other schools in need of support.
Jason said: “Obviously it is important to be given this status and it will allow us to work formally with other schools to assist and support them in their development and journey of improvement.”
The type of support provided is flexible and tailored to meet the needs of each individual school. National leaders of education also have responsibility for developing the next generation of NLEs and national support schools.
