Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) 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.
The SLE role is designed to help raise standards and improve the quality of school leadership through school-to-school support and peer-to-peer learning. This new designation recognises the important role that senior and middle leaders play in improving schools and outcomes for children.
WTSA recruit throughout the year.

Our alliance will monitor the impact of the SLEs’ work by utilising the NCSL Quality Assurance Framework. Regular dialogue will be held between our Teaching School and schools receiving support to ensure that the bespoke support provided is having the desired impact. Ultimate evaluation of the impact of SLEs’ work will lie with our Partnership and Trust Board.
