Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) core training

The Astra Learning Alliance offers training for newly designated Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) and for existing SLEs requiring a refresher.
Training will be facilitated by experienced, practicing SLEs from the Astra Learning Alliance and will take place at Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, Chesham Road, Amersham, HP6 5HA.


  • To understand the national picture, the evolving ‘school led’ system and deployment process
  • To provide practical opportunities to develop your skills and to build a toolkit towards:
    • Building effective relationships in change situations
    • Building robust and effective systems: constructing action plans, information gathering strategies, accountability
  • To appreciate the importance of an Emotionally Intelligent SLE
Our next core training day has not been finalised, but is likely to be in the Autum term 2019/20. If you would like to register your interest, please email Paula Casey.
