Brian Lightman

general secretary association of school and college leaders

Brian Lightman is the general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders. Prior to assuming the role in 2010, Lightman had a long-established career in education. He had been the head teacher in various English and Welsh comprehensive schools allowing him great insight into the sector. According to Lightman, the biggest challenge he faced “was helping those young people whose lives outside school present immense difficulties to develop enough confidence and self-esteem to believe in themselves and experience success. Succeeding in that is enormously satisfying.” As a leader of head teachers, Lightman recognises that his greatest inspiration has been “the young people themselves who often overcome even the most enormous physical, social, or economic barriers to progress to successful and happy lives.”
