Are you an outstanding senior leader with a successful track record of bringing about improvement?


Are you interested in sharing your expertise, supporting individuals and teams in other schools?


If so, why not apply to become a specialist leader of education (SLE)?


SLEs are experienced leaders who have the skills and capacity to help others in the key areas of leadership and management, pupil achievement, quality of teaching and behaviour. They 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.If you are considering making an application in the autumn term, you may want to get ready by reviewing the eligibility criteria and NCTL application guidance.


Our current list of SLEs and their specialist area can be found below, alternatively a pdf directory is available on the right.
