What are ELEs?

Evidence Leads in Education are a Research School designation and as such receive training and updates from the Research School Network and Education Endowment Foundation and in turn be deployed to support schools through training and coaching. Their purpose is to:

- support individual and groups of schools through the provision of expertise- around implementation, evidence- and practitioner- & local knowledge

- bring, and demonstrably show, a diversity of experiences which add credibility and depth when communicating about evidence.

What is the role of an ELE?

ELEs can provide support for schools beyond their own. Typically, this is based around a general understanding of evidence and evidence-informed school improvement, with specific areas of deep specialist knowledge. They do this through:

- Communicating with schools about evidence in a particular area, to an audience from teachers, middle leaders to senior leaders.

- Delivery of specific training (around subject or topic)

- Providing follow-on support to enable schools to structure and plan change in particular areas

Are you considering applying to become an ELE?
