Specialist Leaders of Education

We have a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) at Gayhurst, Lisa Clarke, our deputy headteacher, who can provide school to school support in her area of specialism (Initial Teacher Training) . 

Over the past sixteen years, Lisa has successfully mentored a wide number of trainee teachers studying a range of teaching courses, such as BA, BEd, PGCE, GTP and SCITT. Lisa has worked with many HEI’s: The University of Cumbria, London Metropolitan, The University of East London, The University of Gloucester and The Institute of Education. In her role as mentor she has supported colleagues through the use of clear support plans and has used the IRIS Connect web-based CPD to move new trainees on.
