Event description

Description

The need to identify and suitably prepare teachers to undertake school leadership roles, especially as principals, is now well documented in the literature. Similarly documented is the general concern about the lack of suitable applicants willing to consider these roles. In a recent study, Dr McCulla raised the question of what might be learnt when a group of teachers drawn from executive, non-principal roles participated in a year-long, multi-phased leadership development program. This evening will aim to explore the findings of the research and we will consider how aspiring leaders can respond to the challenges and possibilities of constant change and how they can be best supported in their preparation for leadership. We will aim to examine the qualities that underpin successful leadership that lead to confident, capable and visionary performance into the future.

Speaker: Dr Norman McCulla

Anglican EdComm is committed to developing future leaders at all levels. The Aspiring Leaders Network aims to provide a platform where current and future educational leaders can be encouraged and developed.

Edcomm’s role is to support individuals and schools by identifying and training educators who are considering future leadership for every aspect of school life. If you are someone who is considering any future educational leadership position we would encourage you to give thought to becoming part of this professional network.

The Aspiring Leaders Network is designed to professionally develop aspiring leaders who will collaborate in both face-to-face and online forums. The AITSL standards will guide and shape this professional program that will see future leaders developed with the capacity to interact with each other and academic literature in the area of educative leadership.

The Network will give you continued access to NESA accredited professional learning programs (both online and face-to-face), forums, and opportunities for mentoring/coaching within a structured professional learning network.

Completing Aspiring Leaders Network Forum - Journeys to Leadership: Insights from research and practice will contribute 2 hours of NESA accredited PD addressing 6.2.2 and 6.3.2 from the Australia Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
