SLS Professional Learning Programme 2021 – 2022

Your Professional Association has throughout the current extraordinary situation been conscious of the significant challenges facing schools and school leaders. Since lockdown we have endeavoured to provide members with appropriate and pertinent support, advice and guidance.

As you move back to re-establishing your school as a place where young people can feel safe and are able to regain lost learning, we feel that it is critically important that we offer members a Professional Learning Programme that is responsive to and consistent with the challenges they face on the journey to recovery.

Building on our highly successful Professional Learning programme, but conscious of the impossibility, for many reasons, certainly in the immediate term, of colleagues attending meetings physically, we will deliver Professional Learning through the medium of Webinar.

Sessions will be hosted by SLS Professional Learning Manager Eileen Young and each Webinar will normally last for 90 minutes starting at 2.30 in the afternoon.

The first hour will be input from the presenters during which participants will have the opportunity to submit questions which will be answered during or in the final 30 minutes of the session.

All our events are £35.  Please ensure you request a Purchase Order from your school at time of booking.

A recording of each session will be forwarded to you after the event

Event Information

Values based school leadership is now at heart of our schools but some schools are further ahead on their journey than others.   We are delighted to have three very different schools sharing their story. The three elements they will consider are :

Embedding

Embracing

Empowering

Douglas Brown (HT Boclair Academy) presents on the starting point of embedding values based leadership in the life of a school. Avril McNeill (HT Glenrothes High School) will go on to present on embracing those values through the daily work of the school, and Claire Connelly  (HT St. Aidan's High School)  will go on to present on empowering the school and wider community through this values based approach.
