What is the L.E.A.D. Award?

The L.E.A.D. Award is a unique school based programme of reflective learning which aims to support schools in developing a broad and balanced curriculum which enhances their learners' life skills and growth of character.

Through curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular (the 3Cs) opportunities, the learners undertake a journey of reflection and take ownership of, and responsibility for, their own learning and personal development.

The main aims throughout the award are to enable the learners to develop their leadership, communication and enterprise skills in a culture of high aspiration and a variety of contexts.

Every learner is encouraged, and supported, to set their sights high and broaden their ambitions, irrespective of their background or their individual circumstances. The L.E.A.D. Award aims to foster this process through a diverse range of events, visits and mentoring.
