Specialist Leaders in Education (SLE)

SLEs are experienced senior or middle leaders who are designated by the DFE, trained by approved trainers and brokered by teaching schools to support schools in an area in which they have expertise. There is a charge for SLE support that is set locally by the Association of Central Teaching Schools (ACTS). Charges are reviewed annually.

The SLEs in our alliance have expertise in SEND, Leadership, Behaviour, Assessment, Early Years, Mathematics and English.

If you are thinking about approaching BTSSA for SLE support or are interested in applying to become an SLE please contact our Teaching School Manager, Paul Roberts by emailing  p.roberts@fet.ac
