Click on the above brochure for further details.

The Agile School Leadership program is an intensive, 12-week online workshop designed by Dr Simon Breakspear for high-performing school leadership teams who want to level up and lead meaningful change.

The program is designed to get you and your team running successful evidence-informed improvement approaches in a way that is appropriate for your unique educational context.

Participation in teams (2-4) is required with numbers strictly limited for each of the three 2021 courses.

The cost is $60.00 per participant.  Educational Leadership will extend the DoE reduced rate to a maximum of three participants per school team.  The cost for any additional team members to participate will be $600.  Please note; enrolment through the PLI is necessary in order to receive the subsidised program cost.

Leaders will learn how to:

  • Embrace and model agile mind-sets during complex educational change work
  • Apply agile leadership frameworks and skills within their own roles
  • Refine their improvement priorities and plans, and clarify their precise intended pathways for impact
  • Develop a clear process for leading an iterative improvement journey that can adjust for the human dynamics of change in schools
  • Adopt and embed the plans, routines and norms of highly effective responsive teams
  • Harness formative evaluation to monitor the progress, successes, failures and roadblocks in the improvement journey as it unfolds
  • Continuously refine and sharpen their strategies and plans for improvement based on their own ‘learning by doing’ within their own context
  • Rethink resistance and support the adoption of evidence-informed approaches and practices
