SLE - Specialist Leaders Of Education

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 recognise outstanding leadership practice in their area of expertise and are accomplished in developing other leaders to head their own teams and improve practice in their schools. Specialist Leaders in Education could be deployed if you wish to improve the leadership in a specific subject or specialist area in your school.  They are able to provide one-to-one or group support.

SLEs can be utilised to support leadership developments in a school/subject area for any given fixed period, ranging from a one off session to on-going support over a term or academic year. The cost to a school to deploy a SLE is dependent on the experience and role of the SLE.

Our SLEs can provide support in the following areas:

  • Support and improvement of Performance Management procedures
  • Leadership of CPD
  • Design Technology
  • Food Technology
  • Modern Foreign Languages
  • Science - Key Stage 4/5
  • Early Years/Foundation Stage
  • Drama
  • Phonics
  • Data Analysis


If you would like to book one of our SLEs to provide support in your school, please contact Denise Mair, Manager of the Benfleet Teaching School Alliance by clicking on the contact button below and completing our enquiry form.
