Student and pupil leadership

Students and pupils are central to all that SSAT does

Our understanding of student and pupil leadership and voice is drawn from excellent practice across our networks and built on SSAT’s previous work on personalising learning. We know that, when given the opportunity, young people can have a profound impact on their schools. Involvement in leadership and voice activities can improve students’ and pupils’ learning as well as helping them to develop the skills and traits needed for success outside of the classroom.

In School Training for Students

Delivered by an experienced SSAT Education Lead, each workshop session is three hours long and involves interactive activities to help students practice and embed the relevant skills. Workshops can be delivered on a date and time convenient to you with a group of up to 30 students. You can also combine two workshops into a full day of fun and learning. All participants will receive a certificate to show they have completed SSAT accredited training.

Student and Pupil Leadership Accreditation

SSAT has developed both the Student Leadership Accreditation (SLA) for secondary and Pupil Leadership Accreditation (PLA) for primary to be 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.

Student Passport

Available for students in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5

Academic achievement is important but preparing students for life after education requires more than this. The SSAT Student Passport provides a framework for students to record a huge range of life experiences beyond the academic with the aim of enriching their cultural capital, engaging them in citizenship and preparing them for employment.
