PDTSA Chair Appointed NLE

Pavilion and Downs Teaching School Alliance (PDTSA) is delighted to congratulate our Chair, Nick Wergan, on his new appointment as a National Leader of Education (NLE) .

NLEs are strong school leaders, who have experience of effectively supporting schools in challenging circumstances. NLEs work alongside teaching schools and other system leaders to provide high quality support to those who need it most.

The Department for Education (DfE) approach to designate system leaders ensures that effective school leaders and schools are able to provide high-quality support, in areas of the country where it is needed most.

As a result of Nick’s successful application, Steyning Grammar School is now designated as a National Support School (NSS).

NLEs work with schools identified as being in need of significant improvement by either the Department for Education, Ofsted, a teaching school, a regional schools commissioner, local authority or diocese. 

The DfE maintains a school-to-school support directory for people looking to commission the services of NLEs and other system leaders.
