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 in their own context. Our SLEs have a successful track record of working effectively within and beyond their own school. They demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills and high levels of emotional intelligence to work sensitively and collaboratively with peer colleagues.

We currently have primary and secondary SLEs designated in a range of specialisms. They are fundamental to the delivery of many of our School To School Support activities and are available to provide bespoke support packages to individuals, schools or departments based on identified priorities.
