About Us

Be the change you wish to see with Aspiring Heads.

Aspiring Heads is a social enterprise dedicated to breaking down racial barriers in education in the UK.
Our goal is to increase representation of black teachers and educators in school leadership, ultimately creating a more inclusive learning environment for all children.

Sadly, only 1% of headteachers in the UK are black, making this an urgent issue that we strive to address. As a response, we provide a supportive and empowering network and learning environment for leaders of colour, with a specific focus on mentoring and guidance from successful black leaders in education.

We are focused on providing solutions to close the achievement gap between different ethnic and racial groups in education, by providing tools and resources to support schools, teachers, students and parents.

Having launched in 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, we developed a mission to empower communities and individuals to achieve educational equity by providing training and support to enhance the quality of education for underrepresented groups.

We seek to level the playing field and provide equal opportunities for all pupils and students to succeed.

Nadine Bernard was just eighteen years old when she attended a leadership event that would not only reinforce her aspirations of working in education but inspire her to pursue Headship. At the time of fulfilling her goal, Nadine was considered the youngest black Headteacher in England.

Today, not only is Nadine leading a thriving school community in London, she is also the CEO of a Social Enterprise and a professional executive coach, helping clients to find reward in their work and improve their performance. Along her career path, Nadine has come to learn that personal development has no expiry date and believes in developing the whole person from mindset to physical wellbeing, during her 1:1 coaching, both of which impact personal growth, living and leading well.

Nadine's purpose is to catalyse lasting change in the UK education system, by equipping learners with the support network and tools to achieve higher positions within education.
