Specialist Leaders of Education

If you’re an experienced middle or senior leader who’s interested in supporting middle and senior leaders in other schools, you may wish to apply to become a specialist leader of education (SLE).

There are currently over 7,300 designated SLEs nationally.

Teaching schools and system leaders support the Department for Education’s goal to provide educational excellence everywhere so that every child and young person can access high-quality provision, achieving to the best of their ability regardless of location, prior attainment and background.

Montpelier Teaching School and the West London Teaching Alliance designates, trains and deploys Specialist Leaders of Education.

An SLE also provides an additional level of professional development to their own school and this route can be utilised to help schools promote and retain lead practitioners in their existing settings.
