AVTP has a range of experienced and highly qualified National Leaders of Education (NLEs) and Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) that can be deployed into schools to support in a variety of ways including to provide individual, departmental or whole school support as well as run professional development training for staff. Our NLEs and SLEs are designated by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). SLEs are outstanding middle and senior leaders who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of expertise looks like and are skilled in helping other leaders to achieve it in their own context. SLEs can develop the leadership capacity of others, using coaching or facilitation support that draws on their knowledge and expertise. NLEs are strong school leaders, who have experience of effectively supporting schools in challenging circumstances. NLEs work alongside teaching schools and other system leaders to provide high quality support to those who need it most.
