LEAP Gets two 'Difference Leaders'

The Difference Leaders Programme is for professionals who love teaching, are committed to inclusion and want to develop the evidence base to find out what really helps the most vulnerable children.

A Difference Leader is:

  • Inspired by the problem of exclusion and our solution. Believes better outcomes are possible for the most vulnerable children.

  • Loves teaching, and developing the teaching and learning of others to see pupils make progress.

  • Enjoys challenge and ambiguity – we are pioneering an evidence base together.  The Difference has a lot of questions; we are looking for the bold practitioners who can join the programme and help answer them.

  • A systemic thinker who likes to draw the wider lesson from experiences - to develop the evidence base of what works for the most vulnerable in classroom pedagogy, school policy and local area practice.

The Difference Leaders Programme is: Creating the inclusive school leaders of tomorrow, via specialist training and a two-year post in the senior leadership team of a pupil referral unit. You will be leading school improvement in: Teaching & Learning, Pupil Wellbeing & Safeguarding. This work is vital to improving life outcomes for the most vulnerable children. At the end of the programme, The Difference provides alumni career support to help you to take on a new post in a mainstream school senior leadership team, applying your learning to support whole-school inclusion and prevent avoidable exclusion.
