SLS Professional Learning Programme 2019-2020
Our programme for the session ahead comprises a series of one day Seminars and a 2 Day National Education Conference at St Andrews in November 2019 & 2020. The aim of the programme is to support our members, namely Head Teachers, Depute Head Teachers, Principal Teachers and Business Managers.
The overarching aim for professional learning is to develop and enhance knowledge, expertise and skill and to develop professionalism. This should impact positively on the learning experiences and outcomes of young people. Professional learning should identify the importance of leadership of and for learning to create the culture and ethos of learning. (GTCS Professional Learning Model).
SLS PROFESSIONAL LEARNING EVENTS
The SLS Professional Learning programme offers high quality experiences, the vast majority of which are delivered by senior leaders in secondary schools who bring their knowledge and practice of a theme to share with the other senior leaders. The programme also includes input from other key partners such as Scottish Government, Education Scotland and SDS and is reviewed annual to ensure that it best meets the needs of senior leaders in the ever changing and challenging educational landscape. Events are designed to encourage collaboration and take an approach to practice. The offer relevant and professional learning opportunities at a cost which is sustainable and justifiable within school budgets.
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).
All our CPD Events are open to non members.
