We are recruiting specialist leaders of education SLEs to join our strong, talented and growing team. To find out more about the role of the SLE in the Gateway Teaching School Alliance, and how to apply, please email Jackie Grainger at firstname.lastname@example.org
SLEs are outstanding middle and senior leaders who use their leadership 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.
At the Gateway Teaching School Alliance, SLEs are deployed in other schools to develop and improve practice by working alongside teachers and leaders. By offering credible peer support rooted in current practice and drawing on real experience SLEs share and develop outstanding, inclusive and innovative practice to support school improvement.
SLE’s take a collaborative coaching approach to help develop other teachers and leaders to ensure long term sustainable improvement.
At the Gateway Teaching School Alliance, we select, develop and deploy SLEs in different ways according to the needs identified in other schools. By carefully matching their skills to the schools they work with our aim is to maximize the impact of their support on practice.
The Gateway Teaching School Alliance also provides opportunities for its SLEs to participate in local, regional, national and international networks to develop a learning community of Gateway SLEs.
