Leadership Targeted Support Fund 

The Leadership Targeted Support Fund aims to encourage greater numbers of teachers to reduce their development gaps and gain confidence to move into leadership positions. It gives grant funding to schools to provide leadership programmes in areas or types of school where it has traditionally been difficult to recruit (for example faith and special schools, primary, coastal and small schools).

Teaching school regional representatives were invited to submit regional applications to show how they will achieve this – based on a strategic needs analysis. Over 2000 teachers have benefitted from the first two years of the fund. The Leadership Targeted Support Fund is focused on areas. All participants must be a teacher, teaching in one of these areas.
