Senior Leadership Collaborative Conversations

Target Audience:  Headteachers, Depute Headteachers and Principal Teachers 


Programme Description:  Senior Leadership Collaborative Conversations (SLCCs) are small group facilitated discussions, allowing HTs, DHTs and PTs to come together to discuss current themes and to problem solve solutions together. These conversations are facilitated by Service Managers, QIOs and guest speakers such as Education Scotland colleagues.

Very useful to hear others’ views and advice given. Thankyou.

Conversations are very useful and there was useful information gained tonight.

This session was very enjoyable and well led.
