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
From time to time Principals and leaders alike can be presented with challenges or matters within education which can only be resolved with legal advice and/or representation. I was fortunate enough to be a member of SASSLA when I needed legal representation. The SASSLA team not only helped with providing me access to their legal advisors; they also made regular contact with me, providing much needed moral support and professional advice. Thanks SASSLA
