Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs)

Northern Lights recruits, brokers, deploys and quality assures SLEs  to meet the needs within the region.

NLTSA and SLEs have the capacity, skills and commitment to support individuals or teams in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of specialism looks like and are skilled in helping leaders achieve it in their own context. Using coaching and facilitation skills, SLEs will build leadership capacity in other schools to ensure improved outcomes for children and young people.

As a Lead School for SLEs, our team of over 30 outstanding practitioners have a wide variety of expertise from the core subjects through the wider curriculum to leadership of CPD, and teaching and learning.
