Specialist Leaders in Education

The alliance sees our SLEs as the engine room of development and school improvement particularly in terms of CPD and leadership development.  We already have a small, but vibrant network of SLEs, supplemented by the SSAT’s Lead Practitioner and Leading Edge network and validated against the TDT’s Good CPD Guide. 

These SLEs are able to offer a range of training from bespoke, one-to-one time, to webinars and online coaching, to twilight and weekend provision to large-scale, cross-school INSET provision.

With links to the wide range of SSAT programmes for CPD and leadership development and the TDT’s National Teacher Enquiry Network we will engage staff from local schools in professional development opportunities as both recipients and deliverers of programmes at local, regional and national levels.


The Canons Park Knowledge Hub can offer the following SLE’s;

  • Assessment, Leadership of CPD, Leadership of Curriculum, Closing the Gap, English, Maths, ITT, Behaviour and Discipline, Business Management/Academy conversion.

The usual cost of an SLE day is £250 per day

Please see the section on 'membership' to see how this rate is discounted for partners and members of the Alliance

In the unlikely circumstance that the support needs of alliance partners in challenging circumstances cannot be met by either local NLEs/SLEs or SSAT’s extensive networks, we will use the Teacher Development Trust’s Good CPD Guide in order to identify high quality provision and commission this in support of the alliance generally and the school specifically.
