Program Description

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.
