Advocacy and Support

SASSLA representatives meet with officers from the Department for Education and parliamentarians regularly to advocate issues facing school leaders. We maintain our independence from political parties and the Department to ensure that we represent your views. We also provide support to our members who may need general guidance with leadership issues. Peer support and advice is paramount to us. We can provide you with a support person for any disciplinary or grievance meetings that you may be required to attend.

We pride ourselves on working collaboratively with all stakeholders in our public education system to provide proactive influence, policy and procedural improvement for our members.

Testimonials

SASSLA
SASSLA is the sounding board school leaders need.  It is unfortunate that principals and other leaders need this type of protection but when needed it is efficient, supportive and acted on in a timely manner.  SASSLA provides a highly confidential service through email, phone conversations or site visits.  This organisation provides independent legal advice for a group of educators who experience common issues and are open to litigation.
