School to School Support & Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE)

Teaching schools

School to school support (StSS) & SLEs

The GLF Teaching School Alliance and the GLF Central Education team provide high quality support to schools in need, by quickly  identifying outcomes and putting in place an evaluation strategy.  This process will  include identifying individuals with appropriate skills to provide high quality support. 

GLF Schools have a wealth of expertise. Our team of highly experienced school leaders and practitioners or Specialist Leaders of Education are able to offer a variety of support packages to assist schools in the improvement of a leadership team, department, curriculum focus or student outcomes in your school.

Quality Assurance

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 reviewing the designation of any SLEs whose work does not ensure sufficiently high quality outcomes.
