Brand new programme starting on 21st January at Trumpington Meadows Primary School. This programme has been specially developed for Trumpington Federation teachers and being opened up for more teachers to be able to take advantage. The programme includes a chance to take a look at the macro perspective of your organisation. It explores modeling and monitoring, leading improvements, analysing data and being strategic. It includes strategic aspects of improving outcomes, ambition and career paths and will also look at books, resources, sources of inspiration and role models as well as wellbeing and workload. This well-rounded series of twilights across the second two terms of the academic year is a great way to support recently qualified teachers and emerging middle leaders and has been carefully timed to be succinct to fit in with busy schedules.
Have you got a middle or senior leader in your team who has great skill and expertise in a particular area or areas? Could they be developing their experience and competency and sharing their talents through school to school support? If so, look for evidence that they meet all areas of the criteria and are outstanding in at least one of the agreed SLE areas of expertise. Please note that although SLEs themselves must be outstanding at what they do, they do not have to come from outstanding schools – they can come from any school. Recruitment open 1st-31st Oct. Click here for details and application forms.
SLEs (Specialist Leaders of Education) are really effective middle or senior leaders. To become one, you need to have at least two years experience leading a team, a particular area of expertise and a track record of impact.
The benefits are many: you receive training in how to coach and support others, you become part of a wider network of like-minded leaders, plus you get to work with, learn from and share your expertise with colleagues in a range of other schools.
Apply by 31st May 2018

Our SLEs are innovators and take a lateral approach to their role. Working as a team they are exploring opportunities and looking to see where there are gaps in networks, training and school-to-school support work. If you have been in a leadership role for more than two years, have a specialism in one of the required areas of focus and would like the opportunity to develop your peer-to-peer support skills then please click here to details about the process and to download an application form. Applications for this round close on 31st Oct 2017.
**We are seeking specialist in all areas but would like to highlight Maths, Early Years, Arts and Mental Health & Wellbeing as key areas of focus.
