Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE)

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) 2017-10-18T15:30:45+00:00

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are middle and senior leaders who combine an area of expertise with experience of school improvement.

SLEs are deployed to support leaders in other schools, they use their excellent interpersonal skills to work sensitively and collaboratively with others. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of specialism looks like and can help other leaders to achieve it in their own context.

The SLE role is not about doing the work for others, it is all about developing other middle and senior leaders so that they have the skills to lead their own teams and improve practice in their own schools.

HTSA Designated Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE)

Our Specialist Leaders of Education are  available to provide targeted support in schools. If your school has a specific area for development and you would like to find out how using an SLE could benefit your school please call or email us for more information and costs.
