Welcome to the Association of BAME Business Leaders in Education. We were formed in May 2020 to address the low representation of BAME professionals in School Business Leadership. The network is a space for SBPs of all ethnicities to support and encourage our aims.


ABBLed aims to promote diversity within the profession of school business leadership. Our focus is to develop a network of professionals, of all ethnicities, to support Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic School Business Leaders and encourage new entrants into the profession.

As a network we hope to raise the visibility of BAME SBLs and provide opportunities to develop leadership skills and broaden their network.


~ To create a network of existing and aspiring School Business Professionals who work together to raise the profile of BAME SBPs

~ To provide a voice for BAME School Business Professionals

~ To work to achieve equality of access to CPD and the profession in general 

~ To increase the representation of BAME business leaders on school SLTs nationally to reflect the communities they serve.
