Introducing the new “SYSTEM LEADER DIRECTORY”

on .

DirectorySearching for aligned system leader support? Users can now access a System Leader Directory through which schools seeking support can easily make links and connections to system expertise. For example find an NLE, NLG, SLE in your area. The Directory is community sourced and managed to ensure an up to date system leader offer. It provides an enquiry workflow where users can make contact with a System Leader in their area (IT WILL NOT SHARE OR EXPOSE THE CONTACT EMAIL ADDRESS OF A SYSTEM LEADER).

The CPD Portal’s System Leader Directory has recently undergone development during the Summer. The new Directory now includes listings for individual system leaders. With over 800 system leaders now listed, the directory is the place to find aligned system leader support across SW England. There are a number of search options when seeking support from system leaders through the directory, from name, designation and location. The new updated version of the directory became available across the region on the 1st October 2019. You can view an overview video here

Join the Community and Add Yourself to the Directory

The Directory is only as good as the information listed in it and relies on the community of System Leaders across the region to keep it updated. We'd especially like to see submissions from SLEs across the region.

System Leaders can add themselves to the directory by simply visiting the directory HERE.

From the ‘More Directory Options’ menu select ‘Add an Entry’ and complete the entry form.
