  1. Any plans to ever hold these outside of London? The UK is a large place!

    I know, I know!
    An often-asked question!
    The problem is the additional cost. We use TES premises for free, and the presenters (me and prime, sorry, Prime and I) and the admin support all live within travel distance. If held elsewhere there would be our train fares, overnight hotels, and then actually paying for additional time spent. This would all have to be covered by the fee . . .
    So it's a distant hope, but not yet being planned.
    We have had people from South Devon and North Yorks recently attending the seminars, and finding them worthwhile despite all the travel.
    Best wishes

  3. Fair point! However, when you work full time and cover another job, have a family,it's the silly season for headship applications............ travelling to London isn't really an option!
    Less of a dig at you personally really more at the organisation. People with advice as good as yours do exist outside of London!
     
  4. Middlemarch and Curly Girl spring to mind! Good honest advice can always be relied upon!

    I know, I know - and I've told TES!
    We are putting in 2 extra SLT seminars because of the demand - but currently both in London I believe . . .

    Just heard from someone who attended the SLT seminar last month.
    Before the seminar, a number of applications got him nowhere.
    After the seminar, first application got him shortlisted, he then got through the first round of selection into the final stage - and has e-mailed to say that he got the job.
    His annual salary increase is roughly 200 times the cost of the seminar - a pretty good return on his investment!

    This morning there's been a post from someone else who got a Deputy Headship after the seminar . . . That's two success stories we have heard of in two days.
