Education Leadership Framework

School Leadership is a key driver within the National Improvement Framework (NIF).  We are working together with the Scottish College of Educational Leadership (SCEL) and the Teacher Education Partnership (University of Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh, Fife, Midlothian, Scottish Borders and West Lothian councils) to deliver on this key driver.


The SCEL Framework for Educational Leadership provides online, self-directed learning activities for all educators in core aspects of educational leadership. In addition, activities can be used collaboratively and coordinated by leaders of professional learning.

At a local level we have developed the Education Leadership Framework reflect the needs within our context.  There is a clear commitment to the development of leadership at all levels within our schools.

Teacher Leadership Programme (TLP)

The SCEL Teacher Leadership Programme is open to all post-probation classroom teachers in Scotland. It is primarily aimed at teachers who are seeking professional learning opportunities to develop their leadership of learning and teaching in their context.  A central feature of the Teacher Leadership Programme is enquiring into an aspect of the participants’ classroom practice.

For this programme, applications are through an online application which is submitted directly to SCEL with the SCEL Diversity Monitoring Form on or before eth 29th March 2019

Please notify the local authority if you are successful in securing a place on the TLP.
