Brokering an SLE

If you require an SLE we would try and match an SLE with a leader or leaders in the school that requires support, liaising with the SLE and his or her own school’s Headteacher to confirm capacity and availability.

There is no universal fee for the work of an SLE, our daily rates are available as a guide, as this very much depends on the need, length and focus of any agreed work. Models and types of deployments will vary. For example, one deployment might be a two-day diagnostic exercise, whilst another might require a three-month full-time support role.

Quality assurance and impact monitoring
SLEs will be monitored and held accountable for the quality of the support they provide. They will be expected to be able to evidence that their work has had a positive impact.
As a Teaching School, we are responsible for ensuring that the SLEs they have designated are providing high-quality support to others and that this support is having a positive impact. We are also responsible for reviewing the designation of any SLEs whose work does not ensure sufficiently high-quality outcomes.

All SLEs deployed will be expected to be able to evidence that their work has had a positive impact using a range of indicators including examination results, learner progress, reduction in in-school variation and the improved quality of teaching and learning.

The teaching school will liaise closely with the school requesting the deployment of an SLE to ensure all agreed outcomes at the start of the deployment have been satisfactorily achieved.

Before an SLE is deployed there would be a brokerage contract completed to outline specifically what the area of focus is, the agreed duration/scope of the deployment, funding agreement and impact indicators.
