Learn to lead
Empowering individuals – Improving society
With ten years’ experience behind us, we take engagement to a new level, so that from the very young upwards, people have responsibility and ownership and can run things for themselves. Our expertise is in providing structures, tools, training and inspiration to enable people to work together in teams to bring about the positive changes they wish for. The outcomes are transformational, individuals growing in confidence, self-esteem and ownership, and the whole culture of an organisation changing to one where everyone is ‘doing’ rather than feeling 'done to’.

What good is school? Let’s hear it from the kids… How better to highlight educational inequality in England than by talking to the pupils themselves?

Read what people say about our approach and our work
“I used to think about school – get it over and done with. I didn’t think much of it. Now I am going out of my way to help the school rather than just turn up.”- Secondary School Student
“Learn to Lead has given the school a real buzz. The fact that students can see something they want to change and make it happen is amazing.”- Secondary School Student
“The more centrally I put the ethos and tools of LtoL into my teaching practice, the more my students take ownership of their learning. How else can we achieve more grade As to Cs?”
- Secondary School Teacher
“I’m proud of our Gold Arts Award and of course our Ofsted Outstanding category, but I’m most proud of our achievements through Learn to Lead”- Secondary Principal
“Through Learn to Lead we encourage every person to have a greater voice and involvement in the life and development of their communities, so that they really are THEIR communities.”- Manager, Camphill Village Trust
“There is an unspoken trust and expectation given to the children which encourages ever more responsibility and develops a sense of pride and ownership in all that is done. The children grow in stature and confidence about who they are and what they can do.”- Primary Headteacher
“It gives children a real chance to take on projects, to lead, and to learn those life skills like independence, working with others, having ideas, and seeing problems to a solution. And all for the general good of the school.”- Primary Headteacher
