Mohamed Abdallah is the Head of the Inclusive Leadership Course at The Difference, a charity that exists to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable children by raising the status and expertise of senior leaders in mainstream education. 

Mohamed’s career began in youth work and pupil referral units, before spending over a decade leading pioneering inclusive practice at the ‘Outstanding’ all-through mainstream Dunraven School. Mohamed’s use of Asset-Based Community Development approach - empowering young people and families - helped improve the engagement and wellbeing of young people, in addition to driving down both fixed term and permanent exclusions across the school. Mohamed specialises in multi-disciplinary, safeguarding and trauma-informed practices.

"I am proud to be a part of Power2 and its commitment to recognising the knowledge, skills and qualities that children and young people possess. Supporting them to actively participate in the support of one another has increased the confidence, motivation and engagement of children and young people with their school communities. I am excited to work alongside the Power2 team and trustees to continue and build on this valuable work."
