Centre of Excellence for Free School Leadership

Free Schools have the autonomy to take innovative and creative approaches to raising achievement and an unprecedented potential to connect with community aspirations.

As the learning and development centre for the UK’s largest Free School Multi-Academy Trust, Tauheedul College understands the opportunities enjoyed by Free Schools as well as the challenges their leaders face in getting the right people on board, developing leadership capability and achieving outstanding performance in a start-up setting.

Our national Centre of Excellence for Free Schools Leadership (CEFSL) is designed to build capacity, drive improvement and share best practice through Free School leadership training programmes.

The Centre of Excellence is led by a team of acclaimed educational leaders with experience of leading outstanding Free Schools and providing leadership and guidance to Free School proposer groups.
