Secondary Support T&L

Specialist Leaders of Education for Secondary Teaching and Learning Support

Support can be face to face; by telephone or by e-mail

Bespoke programmes of support can be developed to meet your specific needs. These can range from short single focus pieces of work to medium and longer term programmes covering a number of areas in your improvement plans.

The initial step is a phone call to our office and a discussion to identify the most appropriate colleague to visit you and discuss your requirements and how these might best be met. The amount of support; the timescale; who will deliver; the intended outcomes and cost of the programme will be clearly identified and should you wish to proceed these will be built into the DTSA contract of support.

Colleagues wishing to engage any of the SLEs should contact for more information and guidance.
