Who we are

We are building a network of exceptional school leaders at all levels to transform the lives of the children who need it most.


Ambition School Leadership has merged with the Institute for Teaching to become a new organisation dedicated to supporting teachers and school leaders to keep getting better. We legally merged in September 2018, but will launch publicly as the new organisation in early 2019. Find out more.


We provide world-class leadership development and technical training to educators across England and Wales – from teachers aspiring to lead their department to CEOs steering multiple schools, and all the crucial leadership roles in between.

We work with partners across the education sector to support the long-term improvement of schools in challenging contexts and offer clear pathways of expert career progression for the most important job in the world.

We are working for a fair society built on an education system where every child can thrive, no matter what their background.
