What makes us different?
Our focus on middle leaders
We understand the specific needs of middle leaders to help you achieve your aspirations.
We know how challenging it can be to juggle classroom activities with management responsibilities, and we can help you with this.
We want to share the expertise of the largest professional association for senior school leaders with ambitious teachers wanting to progress their careers and update their skills.
Online resources and advice
We provide you with practical help, expert guidance, relevant news and the latest research. All easily accessible online to help you become better at leading, managing and teaching.
Concise advice from our experts at your fingertips.
Regular advice and policy updates in bite-sized chunks to help you find the answer you need.
Your professional development; enhancing your role
We offer a range of face-to-face or tailored training courses, each topic individually designed to support your development, at discounted members’ rates. Whether that’s about the SENCo as a strategic leader; managing difficult conversations and appraisal; your personal effectiveness and time management; your key role in leading teaching and learning; or getting your head around the curriculum.
Opportunities to share ideas and inspiration
Independent support can be invaluable, but our research shows there are too few opportunities to connect with those outside your own school. We’re nurturing a culture of mutual support for middle leaders, building networks between teachers who are in the same position as you or who might have experience in a role you aspire to move into.
Plus, as a professional association, your subscription is fully tax deductible so you can save on your membership.
