Join us for these latest additions to our professional learning programme.

SLS Professional Learning Programme 2023-24

SLS is the key provider of professional learning for school leaders across Scotland. Our professional learning programme has been accredited by the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

The provision for the coming session will reflect the needs of all members with regards to current educational issues.  As in previous years, the professional learning offer will draw on the skills and experiences of current school leaders, as well as having input from our partners in the Scottish educational landscape. The programme will be published on our website and members will receive emails about upcoming events.

A hybrid approach will be taken to the delivery of professional learning events; both virtual and in-person events will be on offer throughout the session.  Both members and non-members will be welcome to attend our events.

The professional learning programme will be expanded to include other forms of professional learning as the session progresses.  Further information to follow.

Our programme is co-ordinated by Allyson Dobson, Professional Learning Co-ordinator.
