Specialist Subject Leaders of Education (SLEs)
SLEs are outstanding middle and senior leaders in positions below the headteacher, with at least two years’ leadership experience. They have a particular area of expertise (such as a subject area, early years, behaviour, inclusion) and a successful track record of school improvement.
Dartmoor Leaders in Education (DLEs)
The DLE role is a pre-SLE designation and led by us as a teaching school. It follows similar models in Plymouth that have been successful. It is designed for outstanding teachers who are relatively new to having a responsibility or leadership role and / or have had limited opportunities at this stage of their career to work across their school or in other schools. The expectation is that DLE status is a two-year role, leading to SLE designation.
