23 May 2018



Evidence Leads in Education (ELE)

The Aspire Educational Trust and Aspirer Research School, are seeking to increase our outstanding workforce and wish to recruit a number of Evidence Leads in Education (ELE). The ELEs will contribute to evidence informed school improvement and will be designated by Aspire Educational Trust.

What do you need to be a ELE?

You need to be an outstanding teacher, a middle or senior leader, with the skills and passion to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools.

You will need to understand what outstanding leadership in the use of evidence to inform school practice looks like and skilled in helping other leaders to achieve it in their own context.

Duration: There is no pre-defined time commitment for ELE work as models and types of deployment vary according to need and capacity.

Commitment: successful applicants must have a commitment to outreach work, the capacity to undertake such work, with the full support of their Headteacher.

Cost: There is no cost to apply. Successful applicants will be entitled to some training at no cost to their school. When outreach is planned and booked the research school will cover all costs to the ELE’s home school, including supply cover.

Remuneration for ELE deployment will be at the rate of £350.00 per day; a day is defined as 6.5 hours.
