Applications Now Open for Specialist Leaders of Education

Teach Manchester Logo

Teach Manchester is now recruiting to expand its cohort of SLEs.  

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) are outstanding middle and senior leaders in positions below the headteacher, with at least two years’ leadership experience. They have a particular area of expertise (such as a subject area, early years, behaviour or school business management) and a successful track record of school improvement.

SLEs support leaders in other schools. They have excellent interpersonal skills, are able to work sensitively and collaboratively with others and have a commitment to outreach work. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of specialism looks like and can help other leaders to achieve it in their own context.

Teach Manchester welcomes applications from aspiring SLEs in all specialisms, however applications from those to support the following priorities would be particularly welcomed:

  • Maths and ICT cross phase
  • Primary Subject Specialists
  • Early Years Specialism
  • Behaviour Specialists
  • Core Subject Specialism in the Secondary phase

The NCTL has published guidance for potential applicants, which can be found here.
