Playback Ice is now an SQA approved Centre. Approved to deliver Professional Development Awards (PDA) in Leadership and Management. These PDA are competency based delivered onsite which allow candidates to choose the units that match their requirements within the school context whilst reflecting the school improvement. These innovative PDAs will support them to demonstrate their management and leadership capabilities and provide them with a recognised SQA qualification linked to the school improvement plan.

These will provide opportunities for capacity building by adding to existing qualifications in line with Career Long Professional Learning (CLPL) and will contribute to the General Teaching Council (GTC, Scotland).

A practical insight into the current concepts of what effective leadership means within education in the 21st century.

The PDAs encourage disseminated leadership opportunities for those staff who are seeking and recognise the value of accredited leadership opportunities. PDAs allow staff to demonstrate and developed their role within the school including:

  • Deputy Head Teachers
  • Principal Teachers
  • Classroom Teacherssqa-logo
