Have your content published with SSAT
SSAT aims to promote fresh ideas for ambitious schools via ongoing publications that share innovation and best practice from school-based practitioners and thought leaders in education.
At SSAT we publish valuable content in two ways:
- Blogs published on the Sunday Supplement, a weekly e-bulletin to all colleagues at all SSAT member schools. The audience is teachers and school leaders in secondary schools in England.
- Articles published in the termly SSAT Journal, our flagship member-written publication, produced in digital format and circulated to around 15,000 teachers and school leaders in over 1,000 secondary, primary, and special schools in England and internationally.
Who can contribute content for SSAT?
We encourage submissions of blog posts and articles from anyone with experience in schools and/or knowledge of educational research across a range of settings, phases, and subjects. We do not require previous experience of writing similar content.
What can I write about?
We aim to share content that informs readers of key strategies employed and their impact. We find the most successful pieces have a practical element that could be used as a discussion point in schools or provide insights into a classroom strategy that has had a positive impact. We are interested to hear about any aspect of your practice – whole school, departmental or smaller scale.
You may wish to share reflections on an aspect of education policy, issue affecting schools or share recent practice on key areas concerning schools such as:
- Teacher and/or student wellbeing
- Teaching and learning
How do I submit content?
We ask you to submit your expression of interest via the online form at the bottom of this page.
You will need to provide a topic and short outline/summary (no more than 100 words) of your proposed content. SSAT will assess the proposed content, and if suitable for sharing, will get in touch to invite you to submit a draft of your work.
What guidance will I receive?
SSAT will provide a content-writing brief that you will need to follow to submit a draft of your proposed content. The content will then get reviewed by our editors who will provide you with a chance to make amendments to your work. Once this process is complete, we will schedule your content for publication via one of our channels and let you know when it is published.
SSAT reserves the right not to publish articles that do not comply with its writing guidelines. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or if you would like to get a further sense of the scope, scale, and tone that we are aiming for.
