Agile Leadership for School Improvement

The Agile Leadership for School Improvement program will build on each school leader’s ability to collectively drive school improvement.


As a partnership between the School Improvement Unit, QELi and regional leaders, this leadership program is designed to support Principals and school leadership teams having a school review in 2020. Participants will learn that challenges unique to the context of their school require a different form of leadership behaviour. Adaptive leaders are self-aware, have agency over their ability to make a difference, and they mobilise their teams with clarity of vision, a precise plan of action, and strong instructional leadership. Aligned to each school’s context and improvement agenda, the program will support leaders’ empowered mindset and strategies in leading change focused on an ambitious and detailed action plan for improvement. The program will build on leaders’ instructional leadership in supporting and building expert teaching teams, through effective coaching and feedback in improving outcomes for students and school communities.

The program will build a leadership team approach and network of colleagues working together to foster a culture of trust, mutual collaboration, and a shared vision for all schools to achieve improved outcomes.
