Certified Practising Principal Stakeholder Consultation

back to Programs

By providing independent professional certification, Certified Practising Principal (CPP) recognises experienced principals who have attained high standards of educational leadership and made significant improvements in the quality of teaching and learning. Upon demonstrating leadership practices that meet the Australian Professional Standard for Principals, candidates are able to use the post-nominal CPP.

In August 2018, administration of CPP was transferred from Principals Australia Institute (PAI) to the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER).

The vision established for CPP is to build and sustain the leadership expertise of principals and to enhance the attractiveness of school leadership as a career, delivering system improvement and improved educational outcomes over time.

Next steps in implementation of CPP include establishing a charter to guide the operation of the CPP Board and to appoint members of that Board. The CPP Board will not only award certification but also represent the profession, providing authority and standing for principal certification, and ensuring the quality and integrity of the CPP award.

It is important that a broad range of stakeholders takes this opportunity to have input to the formation and operation of the CPP Board.

A discussion paper will be circulated before the meetings to those who have registered to attend.
