This learning event is right for you if you are a school leader who is currently in a middle or senior leadership role and keen to explore the changing landscape for leaders in today’s schools
This three-day program is particularly appropriate for those tasked with a leadership role in the performance and development of colleagues. The commitment of schools to ongoing improvement requires the development of a different skill set in their leaders that focuses on:
• mastering professional conversations
• leading the growth and professional learning of others
• implementing performance and development processes in line with the Australian Teacher Performance and Development Framework
• modelling contemporary thinking in our leadership styles
• leading a learning community.
Participants will explore the theory and practice underpinning these contexts and leadership practices. There will be opportunity to contribute to the workshop and learn from others across the Independent sector.
This program has the greatest impact when two or more leaders from a school can attend together.
· key tips for professional conversations
· strategies for leading the growth and professional learning of others
· a performance and development framework
· models of contemporary leadership.
