We have opened recruitment for SLEs to provide support to staff and teams in local schools and academies. Please note, however, that we do not require any further MFL applications at this time.
We are passionate about supporting school improvement and broadening our network of shared expertise. SLEs should have excellent interpersonal skills, be able to work sensitively and collaboratively with others and have a commitment to outreach work. They understand what outstanding leadership practice in their area of specialism looks like and can help other leaders to achieve it in their own context.
SLEs can come from any school or academy, including nursery, primary, secondary, special, pupil referral unit, independent or free school, or sixth form college. Whilst the individual must be outstanding, his or her school does not have to be. Applicants who apply for the programme must have the support and agreement of their headteacher.

Please return your application form to BTSA@bury.gov.uk no later than Thursday 31st January 2019.
