Delegates will be shown a variety of key facilitation techniques, have an understanding of some key leadership theorists and be supported by a variety of materials that will build up into a personal set of resources for future leadership growth.
How will my school benefit? Delegates will develop leadership skills that will further consolidate and strengthen leadership within their schools. Through the Closing the Gap project delegates will be effectively contributing to whole school improvement.
How will my students benefit? The Closing the Gap project will help to reduce an attainment gap within the delegate's school. Strengthened leadership skills with a focus on leading outstanding teaching and learning will contribute to the raising of expectations within the school setting.
