This was in conjunction with the RAF (Royal Air Force) and the SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network).
The Student Leadership Accreditation (SLA) is an innovative way of formally recognising students’ leadership skills, encompassing all activities students are engaged in whether it’s in the classroom, across the school, or in the wider community.
The training enabled students to collate evidence for their Student Leadership Accreditation portfolios through the SSAT. Students needed to demonstrate 10 key qualities of a leader, provide evidence and explain how they met each criterion. Tomorrow’s leaders were clearly tuned in and eager to impress.
The RAF believes that strong and courageous leadership is needed at all levels to achieve success, it must be underpinned by a degree of emotional intelligence and the empowerment of subordinates to achieve the relevant task. Our students enjoyed the experience and left with several tools that will help them in the future.
Many thanks to Sgt Mick Hill and Sgt Iain Skelton for facilitating the event.
