Leading School Improvement for Primary Team Leaders (Geraldton)

About the program

Leading School Improvement for Team Leaders is designed to empower you to effectively lead a team in your school context.

Participants will have a unique opportunity, as a team leader, to reflect on current practice and what it means to effectively lead their own team and be a strong contributor to the whole school leadership team. You are encouraged to attend with other members of your team to gain maximum benefit from the program.

The program has a clear focus on you as leaders and on your school. It explores the important and complex dual role of the need to lead your team effectively and to make a strong contribution as a whole school leader.

The program is designed to build on current knowledge and empower team leaders and their ability to influence.

It aims to strengthen the work team leaders are currently doing in schools that address improvements to classroom performance.

It focuses on the core work of every school, teaching, as it is that work which impacts on the learning of every student in every classroom.

The program comprises three modules:

Module 1 -  Preconditions for whole school improvement
Module 2 -  Planning to make a difference
Module 3 -  A culture of sustainable change

The modules are sequential, cumulative and lay the foundations for improving the performance of schools.
