Get involved in your school-led regional network to support the leadership development of women in education.
This page is for teachers, system leaders, schools and others to identify and contact their local Women Leading in Education regional network.
We have appointed 9 school-led regional networks to promote women in leadership by:
- supporting women with their career progression
- facilitating leadership development
- providing opportunities to network and share effective practice
Increasing the number of women in leadership positions is a government priority. These regional networks are part of our commitment to support schools to increase diversity in leadership.
The role of the regional networks is to:
- raise the profile and importance of supporting women with their career within education
- identify and support more women with their career progression into leadership
- create local, regional and national networking opportunities to share experiences, such as job sharing and flexible working
- create the potential for development through coaching, mentoring and group discussions to raise aspirations and challenge myths and self-limiting beliefs
- take an active role in supporting our coaching pledge
- work with other providers to maximise opportunities for women
