Supporting School Improvement

Specialist Leaders in 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 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.

SLEs can provide support by acting as ‘system leaders’, supporting individual leaders and teams in other schools by using a high level coaching or facilitation approach that draws on their knowledge and expertise in their specialist area. Support may involve a wide variety of approaches, including diagnostic models, one-to-one or facilitated group support, and if required site visits to track progress and impact.
