If you are an experienced middle or senior leader who is interested in supporting middle and senior leaders in other schools, you may wish to apply to become a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE).
- 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 are 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.
- You must have at least 1 specialism from our areas of expertise, which are based on the areas of focus in the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework.
