THE NEW LEADERS FOUNDATION
The New Leaders Foundation (NLF) is a dynamic
start-up not for profit company working in the
education sector. It partners with government to
improve learner performance by improving the service
support districts give to schools. NLF has developed
an innovative District Service Support Programme
which builds service delivery skills for district
officials and simultaneously provides a managed
change process within the education system.
The main objectives of the NLF are to improve
learner performance by improving districts capacity
and long-term ability to deliver quality curriculum
support to school managers and teachers. A further
objective is to provide rigorous monitoring and
evaluation processes to assess impact.
The NLF achieves these objectives by immersing a
support person in the district at an executive
manager level for 24 months to provide a strong
platform for driving change from within over an
extended period of time.
The Claude Leon Foundation recognizes the important
work on district development been pioneered by the
NLF and has provided a two-year grant (starting in
2012) to support its work.
