Specialist Leaders of Education
Who can apply?
You need to be an outstanding middle or senior school leader with a particular area of expertise
and the capacity, skills and commitment to support others in similar positions in other schools.
SLEs will develop the leadership capacity of individuals and teams in other schools, using
coaching or facilitation support that draws on their knowledge and expertise in their specialist
area. The work will contribute to improving outcomes for children, with priority likely to be given
to supporting the needs of underperforming and challenged schools.
There is no cost to apply. Successful applicants will be entitled to some training at no cost to their
school. However, we are unable to cover the costs of associated travel or supply cover.
The list of specialist areas of expertise, and further information on how to apply, is now available
on the SLE website
