Who is involved
LocalEd has a range of experienced and skilled colleagues leading the pilots and supporting the development of the project. You can find out more about the core team below:
- Project lead: Jonathan Crossley-Holland, one of the authors of the original research on ‘Developing New Locality Models for English Schools.’
- Pilot 3 lead: Dame Christine Gilbert, Adviser and formerly Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector at Ofsted (2006-2011)
- Support for implementation and action research: Ben Bryant, Simon Day, and Simon Rea from the UK-based research and advisory company Isos Partnership.
There will be an independent external review of locality-working as demonstrated by the pilots, reporting after the end of the first year, and at the end of the project. This will be undertaken by the University of Nottingham, and led by Professor Toby Greany.
The LocalEd project is funded by the charity AEC Trust (Association of Education Committees). The charity’s board retains ultimate responsibility for the oversight of the project.
