A schools leadership team is often referred to as the SLT (Senior Leadership Team) or SMT (Senior Management Team). The SLT/SMT is the decision-making body of the school and is integral to a school’s success and direction. They play a major role in the day-to-day running, as well as an overarching responsibility for the strategic vision of the school.

At Clarus Education, we spend considerable time getting to know our client schools and working in partnership with the leadership team, as well as school governors, to make sure we are sourcing candidates of the ‘right fit’.

Working alongside a variety of senior leaders as both clients and candidates provides our team with a unique insight into the depth of skills and strengths required to be an effective and successful member of the SLT/SMT.

We recruit for Senior Leadership/Management Team positions within all school environments across Primary, Secondary and Special Needs. Whether your strength in leadership is Teaching & Learning, Assessment, Pastoral or Curriculum based, we will aim to find you your perfect position – a position which matches your expectations and requirements.

If you are unsure on your next career step or what role you want to play as part of a successful SLT, why not get in touch with our team today and discuss your options and career ambitions.

As a class teacher progresses through their career, additional responsibility is often taken on; whether it be school wide or departmental. These positions allow a class teacher to climb the ladder of career progression, possibly into Middle Management.

Depending on the size of school, a position with additional responsibility may come with a TLR payment (Teaching & Learning Responsibility). The weight of a TLR will depend on scale of responsibility given, which is often determined by the importance placed on the role itself, size of school, department or phase.
