Do you need help or advice locally? Do you need someone to come into your school? The SLA recommend that you contact your local schools library service in most circumstances. Current school library services are listed here. Where these do not exist, or do not provide the service you need, an independent consultant is a good alternative.
The inclusion of a consultant here does not indicate any recommendation or approval from the SLA - each school must take up references as appropriate.
Consultants: To advertise your services here please contact consultants(at)sla.org.uk
N.B. There is a small fee of £50 per year for each listing.
