Program Description

The Middle Leaders in School program incorporates a blended learning approach. This includes four face to face workshops as well as asynchronous learning throughout 2022. The 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. The learning is aligned to the Department’s 2022-2024 Learners First Strategic Plan, Our Approach to School Improvement and High-Impact Leadership Team characteristics.

This program is open to middle leaders 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 throughout the program.

Leaders who have completed ‘Leadership Starts from Within’, will find this opportunity a good next step professional learning opportunity.
