back to Programs

This professional learning program is designed to increase school leaders’ knowledge, skills and capabilities to embed professional learning communities (PLCs) as a means for improving teaching quality and student outcomes and ensuring sustained school and system improvement.

The program is delivered through a blended approach where participants will engage in face-to face forum days, an on-line survey, on-line and in-school coaching and school-based inquiry.

Forum days focus on the following topics.

• PLCs – What they are and what they are not

• Developing high levels of collaboration

• 12 Actions to guide the work of collaborative teams

• Review day – learning together, sharing and celebrating progress, identifying next steps

Participants will:

  • understand what a PLC is and how a PLC can sustain school and system improvement
  • develop the knowledge and skills to create a strong professional culture characterised by shared norms and values, a focus on student learning, collaboration and reflective inquiry
  • recognise and know how to establish the conditions that support a vibrant and productive professional community
  • build skills, confidence and experience in using evidence about student outcomes to continually improve professional knowledge and practice.
