Influential School Leadership – strictly limited places

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - July 19 @ 9:00 pm

A six-month program facilitated by Peter Arbery and providing participants the opportunity to continue their professional development through a series of ten (10) workshops that focus on enhancing leadership skills.

“Ensuring that every school has excellent leadership means four things: creating the right programmes to apprentice and develop school leaders, selecting the right people for leadership positions, empowering and encouraging leaders and intervening quickly to tackle ineffective school leadership.” – Fenton Whelan in Lessons Learned.

The number of participants will be strictly limited to maximise impact and ensure all participants develop an understanding of the importance of leadership, an appreciation of the ethos and values of their school, and have heightened awareness of their own performance and responsibilities.

In addition to attendance at the workshops and involvement in the various activities offered in those workshops, successful completion of the program will require participants to demonstrate engagement with the material presented.

  • Understanding the difference between leadership and management
  • Developing and prioritising strategies
