Leadership Lite aims to reduce teacher workload by eliminating unnecessary practices commonplace in school, such as over-complicated marking policies. This programme has been developed by school leaders at Carmel Education Trust, a Multi-Academy Trust and Teaching School in the North East. It is a broad, whole-school leadership and culture change programme which takes place over 2 years.

The science department at West Lakes Academy are taking part in this research project as a treatment group.

The evaluation report will be published in Autumn 2025.
