Create sustainable resilience in your school.


Improve recruitment and retention.

RLE™ helps:

  • School leaders to develop resilience in others, attracting and retaining talent and ensuring individuals reach their potential. 

  • Teachers to grow confidence in their leadership abilities and development potential, articulating their strengths and areas for development whilst reflecting on their skills as a leader in a classroom.

Resilient Leaders in Education


Teacher and Pupil

A resilient leader knows where they are strong, their areas for development, what takes them from pressure to stress and how to rebalance. 

Through experience of developing numerous programmes with educators, Resilient Leaders Elements understand the need to create transformational and sustained impact.


Our programmes develop ‘muscle memory’ that you and your teams can use to ensure sustainable growth.

Resilient leaders in education develop:

  • Common professional development frameworks, irrespective of career stage

  • A shared language around leadership strengths and areas for development

  • A pro-active leadership development model that fits into and around school life

In an environment of relentless uncertainty and pressure, you need resilient leaders, teachers and students.


Resilient Leaders Elements specialise in developing the capacity of educators to confidently lead themselves and others through uncertain times. 

I have been in teaching and leadership for many years but the opportunity to engage with the RLDP has brought a new level of challenge and personal development to my working life.  
The programme provides a level of structure and focus to explore and reflect on practice - areas of strength and those to be developed.  
Investment of time and thought in the focussed challenges has resulted in personal discovery and taken with the 360 element, asking colleagues to reflect on leadership skills, produces a well rounded, objective focus for personal growth.

The benefits

Resilient Leaders Elements (RLE™) improve learning environments by developing emotionally intelligent leaders who:

  • Have confidence in leadership capability, irrespective of gender, ethnicity or background

  • Grow the capacity to value and make use of diverse opinions, backgrounds and attitudes

  • Improve staff retention by creating better places to work, where people are valued and stay longer

Leaders in education suffer from increasing isolation and professional scrutiny.
Recruitment and retention difficulties add to the pressure.

Each individual can work out what to do for themselves in order to get to the end point. 

Resilient Decision Making

Great decisions are made at the right time, with the right people, in the right place.

Contingency options are always available so that the unexpected can be dealt with effectively and confidently. 


Everyone, including you, works at their best, resulting in higher productivity and motivation. 

Diversity is appreciated and used to the benefit of all.

You have 'presence' even when you're not in the room. 

The best person takes the lead and is fully supported by all around them, leading to greater effectiveness and better results. 

I am more emotionally resilient and can cope with the major decisions and issues that daily come my way.
