Science Leaders' Hub Logo SLH

Welcome to the Science Leaders’ Hub, produced by professionals for professionals.

On these pages you will find a wealth of materials to support you in your role as a science leader or in your aspirations to become a science leader.

This resource grew out of the original ASE/SEP CD for Heads of Science and Principal Teachers and as such we are indebted to all those who contributed to that original edition. Thanks are also due to the many people who have shared their expertise to create this new Science Leaders' Hub. The success of this resource depends upon contributions from the users. 

The Science Leaders’ Hub  consists of three distinctive areas.

Survival Guide (£35 ASE members, £60 non-members)

This edited and reviewed resource, written by fellow professionals, offers advice through 'How to....guides' on all aspects of running a science department. The 'Advice centre' pages act as a 'virtual mentor' coaching the reader in how to move his or her department forward. The guide consists of 6 sections, downloadable as pdf's, as well as electronic versions of referenced ASE articles. Purchasers are entitled to download all future updated editions and will also receive alerts regarding recommended content.

Scenario Collection (free to ASE members)

This collection of real life scenarios is available free to ASE members. Find out how other science leaders have coped and learnt from their successes (and mistakes).

Have you experienced your own challenging situation as a science leader? If so download the scenario questionnaire and send it to the Science Leaders’ Hub Editor .

Share and Adapt (free to ASE members)

This is where ASE members can share their good practice. Whilst the ASE does not endorse the contents of this, unedited, material  it has been uploaded for YOUR benefit. See what others have done and borrow and improve! Use the opening questions on each page as a focus for departmental discussions or CPD. And don’t forget... if you have an activity or tip to share, a document to contribute, or a blog posting to recommend, email the Science Leaders’ Hub Editor .
