Our Specialist Leaders of Education



SLEs focus on developing leadership capacity. While other roles focus specifically on developing classroom expertise, this role is about developing the capacity and capability of other leaders so that they have the skills to lead their own teams and improve practice in their own schools.
This may be done through one-to-one or group support and could involve a variety of activities, such as:
  • data analysis
  • coaching
  • facilitating and training
  • joint action planning


The Teaching School is responsible for their deployment. If you are interested in commissioning a SLE please contact us.
