Please note: Medway Council is currently evaluating tenders for a new counselling and employee assistance programme which will cover community/maintained schools from October. This is likely to be a very competitive price and will be announced and launched in September. In the meantime, maintained schools can continue to use the Council’s carefirst service. Academy schools can currently buy Carefirst services for £6.50 per head per annum which includes face to face counselling (up to 6 sessions per issue). Any queries please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Packages and services from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2019 are now available for purchase via the SLA Online system
Packages and services can be purchased via SLA Online in the usual way. Please contact the Service Provider for queries relating to specific packages.

Upgrades to SLA Online
Frontline Data, our software development partners, have recently made some changes to SLA Online, these are particularly visible in the Training area. Very soon we will be making further changes which will affect all users. Ahead of this I will provide a guide showing what the changes are, how they affect your school/service, and any changes to your responsibilities. To help users with these changes, Frontline Data have also published several more "How to.." guides in the Knowledge Base. This is a really good place to find out more about SLA Online and its potential. To access the Knowledge Base, click on the question mark at the top right hand corner of the screen.
