Specialist Leaders of Education

SLEs cost around £250 - 300 per day.  The HTSA will broker their deployment - please email  dpoole.312@lgflmail.org or telephone 01895 671094 for further information.

Choosing the right teaching school alliance

Teaching schools are responsible for the recruitment, assessment, designation, brokerage and quality assurance of SLEs. Each teaching school has identified the priorities within their alliance or area and is recruiting SLEs in accordance with their needs.
