SLEs & SCHOOL TO SCHOOL SUPPORT
Specialist Leaders of Education are middle or senior school leaders with capacity and skills to support colleagues in other schools. LUTSA SLEs have a proven track record in their area of expertise and undertake training to ensure that the support they give is the best possible quality.
The role of the SLE is to support middle/senior leaders in other schools. Individual deployments will be based on need and demand; all deployment types will vary and there is no pre-defined time commitment. Each SLE has committed an average of 15 days a year.
Specialist Leaders of Education provide high quality, bespoke support to schools in a variety of ways. They can provide tailored CPD packages,1:1 support for teachers or can work as part of a school to school support package.
To discuss your schools requirements, please contact Sarah Rockliif on: firstname.lastname@example.org or use the request link.
WHO & WHAT ARE SLEs?
Teaching schools designate and broker specialist leaders of education for commissioning in local schools. Specialist leaders of education are experts in a particular area and may be deployed to schools as part of a support package, may provide specific CPD or may even deliver on the Schools Direct programmes. Although there is a commitment from schools to make the SLE available for deployment, this is also an excellent way to retain the best staff in our schools at the same time as allowing them to develop professionally by working outside of their own school.
Overall, how satisfied are you with the support your school received? “Very, the SLE is a highly skilled professional and she has brought a lot of support to our team. Her enthusiasm and positive attitude has helped our teachers strive for professional development and ultimately help improve standards for our children.”SLE Testimonial

Become a Specialist Leader of Education
The teaching school alliance will be recruiting SLEs in the next round so we need school leaders to tell us what the demand is in terms of subject areas / expertise and to encourage the best classroom practitioners to apply to be designated. If you have someone in mind already, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we would be happy to have an informal chat with them about what they may be able to offer.
This form can will be used by Learning Unlimited teaching schools to support the SLE deployment brokering process. It is intended that the form will be agreed by all parties (the SLE, the supported school and the teaching school). The form sets out the contracted arrangements and the agreed objectives of the deployment. It will also support the completion of the deployment evaluation form, which should be returned to the teaching school at the end of a deployment.
