Ten Exmouth teachers have been appointed as specialist leaders of education (SLE) at their schools.
The Exmouth Academic Learning Community (EALC) - which comprises 10 schools in the town, Budleigh, East Budleigh, Otterton, Woodbuty and Woodbury Salterton – has selected a teacher from each school for the nationally-recognised qualification.
Steve Hitchcock, chairman of the EALC and headteacher at St Peter’s Primary School in Budleigh, said: “The EALC schools are determined to improve the capacity and capability of leadership in our area.
“The first step is about developing talent, which we have done by recruiting and appointing Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) from the staff in our schools.
“Our new SLEs will help to develop the capacity and capability of other school leaders so that they have the skills to lead their own teams and improve practice in their own schools. “
“SLEs will be able to work with all of the schools in our learning community, leading to better collaboration between schools and better outcomes for pupils. “
