ASCL New to the Senior Leadership Team Conference

The best possible start to your senior leadership journey

Our New to Senior Leadership online conference provides an excellent introduction to all aspects of senior leadership.

Designed for colleagues taking on their first senior leadership position in September as well as those who have recently moved to a SLT role, this conference covers a wide range of topics to develop your skills and knowledge and will help you grow your thinking and approach as you progress from middle leadership.

A series of keynote addresses and workshop sessions will be available to watch live on 6 and 7 July, and afterwards at your convenience via our on-demand service (available for three months after the event).

  • Being new to a team and establishing networks
  • Imposter syndrome
  • Managing difficult conversations and investigations
  • Wellbeing for school, college and trust leaders
  • Balancing the operational and strategic
  • Understanding school budgets
  • Working with governors and trustees
