Specialist Leaders in Education (SLE)

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE)

Weston College Teaching School Alliance are pleased to announce that the window for applications to become an Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) will open again in September 2018. 

Following the government’s pledge to improve the support available to young people to promote mental health and wellbeing, we are looking for experienced middle and senior leaders with expertise in all areas of teaching, learning and assessment who demonstrate a commitment to inclusive practice, SEND, mental health and behaviour for learning.

This was a unique opportunity for leaders who wish to influence the way in which all pupils are empowered to achieve.

To become an SLE, you need to have been in a leadership role other than headteacher for at least 2 years. Your headteacher will be asked to confirm that you’re in an appropriate role. Higher level teaching assistants are not eligible to apply.

You can be from any type or phase of school.

You don’t need to be in an outstanding school or a school that is part of a teaching school alliance, but your school will need to have the capacity to release you to work in other schools.

For further information about the role of SLE in general visit GOV.UK.
