As the traded company to London Diocesan Board for Schools, we would like to draw your attention to the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership (CEFEL) NPQ programmes.

I particularly liked the approach and manner of delivery by the facilitators. No one was put on the spot or pressured to give a response. As a result, this created a climate in which all participants felt comfortable sharing.

London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS) serves 154 schools and 55,000 pupils across 18 thriving, diverse and vibrant London Authorities in London. Our vison is for schools to provide a transformational education where all children and adults flourish in the widest sense.

For 20 years, we have provided high-quality successful leadership programmes to church and community schools and are very excited to be serving the common good by delivering the CEFEL NPQs to schools of all kinds in London.

This provision is unique in that coaching sessions are included in all CEFEL NPQs.
