The HPL Global Lead Teacher scheme supports excellent classroom practitioners to extend their influence beyond their own school into the Global Community of HPL Schools and the broader education community. HPL Global Lead Teachers provide pedagogical leadership, and research and develop best practice in collaboration with HPL expert practitioners across the world.
The HPL Global Lead Teacher status can only be given to a teacher who is part of the Fellowship of World Class Schools and has demonstrated excellent outcomes as a result of embedding the HPL philosophy through their everyday practice in the classroom.
Global Lead Teachers are accredited for up to three years.

The benefit to your school
The High Performance Learning Global Lead Teacher scheme is an exciting opportunity for HPL schools to celebrate, consolidate, deepen and extend their existing HPL practice by recognising a genuinely outstanding practitioner who can act as a global leader in their subject or phase.
This prestigious opportunity will enable your school to reward and retain your best leaders and practitioners by offering them an invaluable route through which to extend their impact of HPL practice in your school and globally across the HPL network of existing and aspiring schools.
As more schools across the world adopt the HPL approach, the opportunity to both shape and learn from new and innovative approaches through the participation in the HPL Global network of Lead Teachers will ensure that your school is always at the cutting edge of practice.
Applying for Global Lead Teacher status follows this process:
- The Headteacher of the school nominates a member of their team. If the nominee accepts, they complete a self-assessment application form where they will provide a brief set of evidence against each of the Global Lead Teacher Standards.
- Once the HPL Selection Committee has received the completed application form, the Panel will notify the Headteacher, whether the candidate has met the criteria and will progress to the Interview Process.
- After an interview with the nominee, the successful candidates will be notified and the HPL Team will contact the school to set up a meeting to discuss the specific GLT role in more detail.
