Program Description

The four-day, Middle Level Leadership in Schools program has been specifically designed to build the capability, skills and confidence of middle-level leaders to lead and manage change in their current role.

The learning has been innovatively designed to build participants’ applied knowledge and understanding of the professional practices and leadership requirements (Australian Professional Standard for Principals) for leaders through providing practical skills and tools that can be used within their roles.

This program is open to leaders currently in a merit selected AST or AP level leadership role in a permanent or acting capacity. Participants  can be new to a formal leadership position or have extensive leadership experience in a middle level leadership role. The learning will be differentiated for participants.

The Learnings from this program build on the experiences gained from “Leaderships Starts from Within”.
