The aim of our school to school support is to work collaboratively with schools to address priority areas and raise providing bespoke support packages. We have a highly experienced team available to provide bespoke support to individuals, departments or whole schools and MATS. The team includes National Leaders in Education (NLE’s), National Leaders of Governance (NLG’s), Local Leaders in Educations (LLE’s), Specialist Leaders in Education (SLE’s) and Leading SENCos. They can work with you to review current practice, develop strategies and interventions and share expertise.

Some examples of the types of support offered are:

  • one-to-one support
  • group support or training sessions
  • coaching or mentoring
  • access to resources 
  • peer reviews

The charge for support is £350 per day for an SLE, £450 for LLE and £550 for NLE.

To enquire about support from a specialist leader, or the types of support available, please contact Charlie Furniss on 07467957922 or via email.


Specialist Leaders in Education

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are leaders identified by the National College as being able to provide exceptional support to schools in need within their specialist areas. SLEs have to apply through the National College and go through a selection, assessment and monitoring process before they are allowed to deliver support to schools. SLEs are at the heart of the principle of a teaching school alliance – leaders who share knowledge and best practice to help other teachers and schools improve. There are many benefits for individuals too, and their schools, to becoming an SLE, including:

  • Opportunities to work independently, to be creative and try out new ideas.
  • Development of coaching and facilitation skills.
  • Opportunity to network with peers.
  • Experience of different school environments.
  • The chance to learn from ideas and approaches used in other schools.
