Weekend Course

Our SLA Weekend Training Course is hugely popular. Held in June at a different location each year, the course has become an essential element of professional development for many school librarians - "a wonderful melting pot of ideas".

The course is fully residential, but day delegate options are also available.


The SLA's 2016 weekend course - Empowerment, Empathy, Engagement: The Impact of School Libraries - will be held in a two-day format on 24 - 25 June 2016 at Tortworth Court, Wotton under Edge, Gloucestershire.

Further information and online booking will be available soon.
