SLS Professional Learning Programme 2019-2020

Our programme for the session ahead comprises a series of one day Seminars, a Full Day Summer Conference in June 2019 and a 2 Day National Education Conference at St Andrews in November 2019. The aim of the programme is to support our members, namely Head Teachers, Depute Head Teachers, Principal Teachers and Business Managers. This support focuses on a number of approaches:

  • Key Educational priorities both current and recurring eg Raising Attainment:  National Improvement Framework
  • The challenges of senior and middle leadership and management eg Inspection : Challenging Situations 
  • Building leadership capacity

Leadership – As the major leadership organisation representing middle and senior leaders in Scottish secondary schools we are committed to providing a programme which continues to enhance the capacity of school leaders and their schools to deliver the best outcomes for our young people.  An number of our events have been accredited by The Scottish Centre for Educational Leadership (SCEL).
