Alliance Specialist Leaders of Education
About Specialist Leaders of Educationtop ⤴
The Schools White Paper introduced the concept of the SLE role, to help to improve the quality of school leadership through school-to-school support and peer-to-peer learning, ultimately raising standards and improving outcomes for children.
We are fortunate to have some very highly skilled practitioners working with us as Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE’s)
Our SLE’s understand clearly what outstanding learning and leadership practice look like in their area of expertise and are skilled in helping others
Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are typically outstanding middle and senior leaders who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools and are very experienced Subject Leaders or Assistant/Deputy Headteachers who have had with at least two years experience in a particular field of expertise and have an excellent track record of supporting peers within or outside their school to develop excellent practice.
Tailored support from SLE’s is brokered through the Teaching School Alliance, and they work professionally with leaders in partner schools offering a package of support to ensure that outcomes for pupils are improved and then sustained.
Peer to peer support, focussing on a specific area for development is a very powerful tool for school improvement particularly when it is rooted in outstanding leadership practice that draws on real, and relevant experience.
Current SLEs available are profiled below. If you would like to have an SLE to work in your school, the daily rate is £350, half a day £175.
If you would like Specialist Leader of Education Support for your school please contact Jo.Turner@thewroxham.net – our SLE Coordinator who will be pleased to organize support.
