Specialist Leaders of Education

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are experienced middle and senior leaders with the skills to mentor and coach their peers around their area of specialism, or to develop and deliver training on behalf of a Teaching School Alliance.

SLE specialisms can range from expert subject knowledge to whole-school strands such as SEND, attendance or business management.

Once trained, SLEs will usually be deployed into a client school through conversation with the Equate admin team, and based on their capacity, travel preferences and the needs of a client school. Sometimes the work will be as part of a wider package of school support from an NLE or LLE, other times it will be as a stand-alone piece of support. The SLE's school will receive reimbursement for the SLE's time out of school.
