Our courses for teachers, school leaders and principals are:

  • aligned to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST)

Whole school program of learning

We can work with your school, or a cluster of schools, to develop and/or deliver customised professional learning courses that meet the needs of your school and educators and aspiring leaders.

Sample courses include:

  • Instructional Leadership – Leading the Learning in Your School: Participants will develop knowledge and understanding of the process of instructional leadership, develop skills to lead learning and contribute to a student-focused school culture of learning and teaching.
  • Practitioner Inquiry – Evidence-Based Practice: This program places you, your classes and your students in central focus. You will develop knowledge and understanding of practitioner inquiry for evidence-based practice, relevant inquiry skills, and a career-long commitment to evidence-based practice.
