Welcome to our Specialist Leader of Education Page.

What are Specialist Leaders of Education?


Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) are recognised teachers who have something to share. They are able to pass on their knowledge and skills to others. This is achieved through a coaching model so those working with the SLE own their own learning. In this way those working in a networks develop different perspectives, enhance their understanding further and find new ways to apply their skills.

The recognition of Specialist Leader of Education is managed by the Department for Education. The South Essex Teaching Institute has decided that whether recognised by the DFE or not, those that wish to share expertise and work with others are equally valued.
