SLEs work to develop the leadership capacity of others, drawing upon their own specific knowledge and particular area of expertise. SLEs are deployed to schools to deliver training, staff meetings, or over longer periods of time provide 1:1 subject leader support or be part of on-going work to address whole-school priorities.
