This book delivers a contemporary, authentic and engaging exploration of scripture, how we might engage with it as leaders and building capability for leading scripture based staff formation for your school context.

      A key component is liaising with colleagues, sharing good practice and returning to school with the confidence, knowledge and resources to engage your staff community. Previous participants have reflected on the value of this collaboration and professional relationships for making Catholic Identity visible in their schools as well as developing their personal knowledge of theology and scripture. It is encouraged that you participate with colleagues from your school leadership team to maximise its impact on professional practice.

      Goal

      To meet the Corporate Plan 2020-2024 goals that Principals, Deputy Principals and Assistant Principals Religious identity and Mission exercise shared and effective religious leadership that enhances the catholic identity and Mission of the school (G16) and Leaders, staff and students regularly engage in  spiritual and religious formation. (G17)  

      To effectively strategise, embed and make visible regular staff engagement in Spiritual and Religious Formation in order to facilitate and promote Catholic identity that premises community engagement, partnerships and a culture of inclusion.

      2021 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

      In this eight day course leaders of learning will practice and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

      Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhances cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for all schools who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue. This course aims to build capacity by:

      • Assisting improvement and evaluation of pedagogy in your school context.
      • Providing you and your team with strategies, and ways of thinking and working, with potential to improve learning outcomes for all.

      Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

      The Cognitive Coaching course was without doubt one of the best professional learning opportunities of my career.  I would encourage leaders in our schools to consider this as an essential course for their professional development. The course was well structured with helpful strategies and real applications that could be put into practice.  It developed a mindset of coaching which sits in a companion model, that is sitting alongside and supporting others in their formation and daily work, rather than just performance management. The eight-day course was packed with practical and interactive activities, superbly led by our facilitator.”   (Philip Donato, Head of Senior School, Saint Ignatius College)

      THE MUSTARD SEED

      A residential program for school leadership teams to develop strategy to lead Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation

      Venue:  McCracken Country Club, Victor Harbor

      This aims to develop capabilities in strategizing, leading and understanding principles of staff formation, followed by a 12 month accompaniment relationship with an advisor to support implementation, assist in master planning and provide professional mentoring. This will support leaders in excelling in the Leadership Standard of Leading Catholic Identity and provide strategies for clearly articulating a vision and mission for the school that embodies its Catholic Identity and promoting, maintaining and enhancing processes for dialogue, prayer and spiritual and religious formation.

      This enables leaders to effectively plan to meet the Corporate Plan 2020-2024 goals that Principals, Deputy Principals and Assistant Principals Religious identity and Mission exercise shared and effective religious leadership that enhances the catholic identity and Mission of the school (G16) and Leaders, staff and students regularly engage in  spiritual and religious formation. (G17). They are designed to meet the needs of leaders in being able to strategise, plan, implement and review Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation.  Providing effective, localised and engaging formation opportunities in schools is central to developing authentic ways of enhancing Catholic Identity that is intentional and meaningful.

      This program supports the CESA Corporate Plan that schools to be engaged in strengthening their Catholic Identity and the faith formation of their leaders and staff.  I would encourage schools who have not previously attended, those who have changes in their leadership teams and those schools who are revisiting their strategic plans to consider participating. It is strongly encouraged that as many members of a leadership team, including the Principal, attends to maximise shared learning and decision making. It is an intention that the experience is educational, formational and purposeful - that leaders will return to their schools with goals, strategies and actions named.  A consultant from the Staff Spiritual and Religious Formation Team is provided for ongoing engagement and support.

      We are asking that each school makes a $250 contribution per participant, towards the total cost of $520 per participant.  We anticipate this experience will contribute 20 hours towards the Teachers Registration Board’s requirement of professional learning for registration, for those needing to demonstrate this.  If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to call me on 8301 6674 or email at julian.kluge@cesa.catholic.edu.au

      The First Spiritual Exercises: Inner Peace in Friendship with Jesus

      The First Spiritual Exercises as originally conceived by St Ignatius Loyola and adapted by Fr Michael Hansen SJ consist of four retreats.  Each retreat includes guided prayer exercises, individual reflection and spiritual conversation.  ‘Inner Peace in Friendship with Jesus’ is the second FSE retreat offered in our program following the success of ‘Inner Peace in Divine Love’ in 2018 & 2019.

       The FSE offers life through something strangely ordinary – listening and conversation. In sacred listening we hold the other with reverence and humility. In spiritual conversation, with the focus on the Spirit at work in the exercises, we give and receive life. A single story from another can change us for life. Such stories reach deep and catch us up, to transform and nourish. And our life stories carry life for others. The FSE is full of deep stories, five or six every exercise – our stories, the story of the universe, of people in great need, of intimacy with Jesus.


      Open to Principals and Deputies

      Mode:  3 days over three weeks
      (attendance at all 3 days is required)
       

      Cost $350 per  participant

      Change Management: Daring to Lead through Change 

      One day workshop with Anna Ranaldo

      For: Principals/DPs/APRIMs/POR 3 & 4

      How do we equip our leaders with the courage and change skills required to drive adaptive, emotionally agile workplaces?

      Based on over 440,000 pieces of empirical data, Dr Brené Brown’s research found that ‘fear of irrelevance’ was the number one shame trigger in organisations.  In a world of rapid growth in artificial intelligence and unprecedented change globally, left unchecked this fear is key barrier to change agility. This gritty program delves deep in emotional intelligence, resistance to change and provides practical tools to deliver successful change.

      Workshop Objectives:

      1.      Understand the Aspen Change Management Framework for success
      2.       Complete a Change Assessment to determine scope, readiness & risk
      3.       Understand Dr Brené Brown’s four key skills of courage 
      4.       Maximise Stakeholder groups utilising BRAVING model of Trust
      5.       Complete a Barriers to Success Assessment & Purpose to People Plan

      Participants must have completed a Dare to Lead workshop and are required to complete a Change Project assessment to identify Change Readiness Factors (details will be sent in advance of the session).
