Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs)

We are looking to recruit and identify outstanding middle and senior leaders who will support individuals or teams in other schools. SLEs build leadership capacity in order to improve outcomes for students, and are:

  • Excellent professionals in leadership positions below the headteacher, with the capacity, capability and commitment to work beyond their own school.
  • Outstanding in a particular area, for example: a subject specialism, inclusion, ITT mentoring, performance management, behaviour, school business management.
  • Designated and brokered by teaching schools, but may be from any school.

Our outstanding SLEs come from different schools across the Group and will be happy to help you develop successful leadership capacity. Lists of our SLEs are available here: Primary Phase SLEs and Secondary Phase SLEs. Below you will find profiles of all our SLEs.

Please read the Carter Community School case study below to find out how our SLEs can help your school.

Don’t forget to check our Useful Documents and News sections for recruitment information if you are interested in becoming an SLE.
