This course is designed specifically for those in educational leadership positions. It will enable participants to explore and understand components of the Family Partnership Model (Day, Ellis & Harris, 2014) and the theoretical concepts which underpin the model. The course will also explore the application of the Family Partnership Model (FPM) in the context of the various levels of relationships which educational leaders experience. These include relationships with parents, community, collegial team relationships, and supervisory relationships.

Participants who have previously completed the Family Partnership Model – Foundation Course, will revisit components of FPM as well as consider its application in the educational leadership role. It is not a prerequisite for enrolment in this program.

For Non-DoE enrolments please contact the Coordinator

By being involved in this program participants will:

  • engage and work more effectively with parents, families, community and staff
  • develop a clear understanding of the FPM helping process, and develop and practise the skills of engaging parents/others and developing effective relationships with them
  • explore the application of the FPM in an educational leadership context
  • explore, confirm and develop their own understanding and application of the helping process within a safe, reflective environment.
