Event Details


We're excited to be back in person for the 2022 SLA Weekend Course at Ashford International Hotel, Kent, between 10th-12th June 2022. Marking the SLA’s monumental 85th anniversary and our first ever hybrid event, Lifelong Learners: Journeys of Curiosity, Collaboration and Imagination will be an invigorating weekend full of learning, networking and celebration.


Catered to school library staff and teachers in primary, secondary or sixth form, join us for a wide selection of insightful and inspiring presentations, workshops and seminars covering the themes of:


  • Reinvigorating Reading
  • Collaboration and Co-creation
  • Skills for Lifelong Learning

Alongside our amazing speakers, we've tried to provide more choice than ever before, and have taken on board feedback from previous weekend courses. There is more time for networking, and a range of session options - keynotes, workshops and 'In Depth' sessions - allowing you to explore the topics you want at the depth and pace which suits you. 


With new and long-standing suppliers attending the Exhibition, there will be a chance to explore and find out more about developments in publishing, library management systems, e-resources and much more. 


With increased value from 'Ask the Question' sessions - one to one, bookable sessions where you can spend 15 minutes exploring a topic or issue with someone who can advise - to access to the event platform (with all the recordings) for in-person delegates as well as virtual delegates - this weekend course provides something for everyone.
