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.
