School Leadership is a key driver within the National Improvement Framework (NIF).  We are working together with the Education Scotland Professional Learning and Leadership 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.
