Description

This program is for anyone considering a leadership role in an Independent school. 
Please note that this course builds upon each day and participants should therefore attend the full course to gain maximum benefit.

This is the eighth year that this highly successful course has been offered. The program for 2018 has been designed based on the feedback received from participants over the years and will be flexible in order to respond to the needs of the group.

The course will be facilitated over three days and is suitable for those who are currently in middle leadership roles, teachers who aspire to leadership and for new leaders.  It aims to provide participants with the tools, frameworks and knowledge required in a leadership position today.

Previous participants comment on the fact that the course is both an inner and an outer learning journey as a great deal of importance is placed on self-reflection. Attention is paid to the development of self as well as to numerous other aspects of leadership.

The course will cover a brief introduction to contemporary leadership theory and change management.  It will also include whole school planning as well as an in depth examination of the leadership resources available from AITSL.

The course will require time for pre-reading, for reflective thinking and ongoing journaling and for preparing a short presentation for the final session.  Coaching will be available to course participants between the sessions.

Leadership And Teacher Quality Consultant
Janet Wilmot<span>(AISWA Staff)</span>

Janet is passionate about education and has a strong interest in the impact of leadership on teaching and learning as well as exploring the complexity of leadership at all levels. She enjoys the challenge of school improvement in different contexts and working with teams to empower them to make the changes that are needed. She is committed to working with aspiring leaders and to doing all she can to promote women in leadership. This is an area of increasing interest and her research and Janet has established a network of Women in Educational Leadership that is open to anyone interested in attending the meetings. Janet is also keen to support those new to teaching so that they continue to grow and to see themselves as lifelong learners rather than being lost to other careers.

Janet has over twenty years’ experience as a school leader and has taught at all levels. She holds a Master of Education degree, her research being in the area of middle schooling. She has worked on a number of state and national committees and represented the Independent Sector on the Secretariat of the Australian Primary Principals Association. She was Vice-President of that association and is now a life member. In 2010 Janet was the recipient of a John Laing Award that recognizes those school leaders who have significantly contributed to the professional learning of their colleagues. Janet is a school visitor, reader and consultant for the International Baccalaureate Primary years Program and a strong believer in the strength of the IB.

Janet looks forward to working with teachers and school leaders in order to support them in the complex work that they do in order to improve outcomes for students.
