Advocacy and Support

SASSLA representatives meet with officers from the Department for Education and the Minister for Education 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
I see my SASSLA membership as a type of insurance policy. It’s my support network to fall back on in possible times of crisis. Knowing that I have legal assistance a phone call away and financial assistance with legal costs gives me peace of mind. It’s reassuring to know that I have genuine peer support now and throughout my future career.
