SLS Professional Development Programme 2017 -18

Our programme for the session ahead comprises a series of one day Seminars, a Full Day Summer Conference in June 2018 and a 2 Day National Education Conference ‘Leading for a Purpose’ in November 2017. 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 e.g. Attainment; and Inspection
  • The challenges of senior and middle leadership and management
  • 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. We are also currently in discussion with the Scottish Centre for Educational Leadership (SCEL) to gain accreditation of some of our events leading towards the Into Headship programme.

Our CPD Events are open to non members.
