Description

This masterclass is intended for aspiring (or new) school leaders and offers an introduction to the opaque world of government funding streams and how they are budgeted to maximum impact.

This is an opportunity to hear from experts and practitioners on the information that all school leaders need to know.

Specifically, topics covered are 

  • School Funding- Federal, State, and School fees. 

  • Managing the budget and working with your business manager.

  • Nationally Consistent Collection of Data - what needs to be collected and how it is funded.

Executive Director

Valerie Gould became the Executive Director of the Association of Independent Schools of WA in July 2008. She has worked for many years in the Western Australian education system with her first four years teaching Economics and Mathematics.

She has been with AISWA for more than 10 years and has worked closely with schools and other stakeholders in the areas of curriculum change, Curriculum Framework and Senior Secondary Education; and in meeting government regulations from a national and state perspective. Valerie has a Bachelor of Economics and a Diploma of Education, and is a Fellow of the Australian College of Educators and the Australian Council for Educational Leadership.
