SLE Application Form

If you wish to apply to become a Specialist Leader of Education with the Sheffield Teaching School Alliance please download and complete the application form and return via email to: by Friday 9th June 2017.

Interviews will be held on Thursday 22nd June 2017 at Silverdale School.

General guidance

This form is set out in two sections. Section 1 is to be completed by you, the applicant, and section 2 is to be completed by your headteacher (as your referee). There is a 300 word limit for each answer. Once you have completed section 1, the form should be emailed to your headteacher to complete the reference section and submit the document to the us on your behalf. This will complete the application process.

Applicants are strongly advised to read the full SLE application guidance before completing their application.

Headteacher reference

It is important that headteachers endorse the applicant’s intention to apply for the role of an SLE. You are therefore required to provide a reference from your headteacher that supports your application and validates both your eligibility and capacity to perform the role.

Once your headteacher has completed the reference section of this form, he or she will need to return the whole document to The Sheffield Teaching School Alliance at

Until this has been carried out, your application will not be fully submitted so cannot be considered.
