Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are outstanding middle and senior leaders who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of expertise looks like and are skilled in helping other leaders to achieve it.
Teaching Schools are responsible for designating SLEs, brokering SLE deployments and providing ongoing support. The Department for Education introduced the SLE concept in their The Importance of Teaching: The Schools White Paper 2010. The SLE role is designed to help improve the quality of school leadership through school-to-school support and peer-to-peer learning, ultimately raising standards and improving the outcomes for children.
Our Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are outstanding practitioners. To become an SLE, you will need to provide evidence that you understand what outstanding leadership practice in your area of expertise looks like and you know how to support other leaders to do the same in their own context.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss bespoke school to school support in your school with one of our SLEs.
