The program provides an opportunity for individuals to self-reflect about their leadership capabilities and make a contribution to the shared direction of their school and the broader system.

    There are four phases to the program:

    Phase 1:  The self-reflective professional (individual basis)
    Phase 2:  Strengthening a team of leaders (two day workshop) 16-17 April 2019
    Phase 3:  Project development and peer coaching (in-school and peer group)

    Session 3:  Assessing impact –
    using data and evidence to assess the impact of strategic initiatives on student learning

    This workshop series on Assessing Impact invites senior leaders to identify and monitor the most effective and practical strategies that underpin continuous improvement in learning outcomes for students in their school.

    • How do we actually measure growth and/or improvement in learning?
    • Are our measures valid and reliable and how do we know?
    • Is there some confusion between causation and correlation?

    Leaders are invited to engage with current assessment practices and processes in their own school context and align these with CESA strategic priorities and their annual school improvement plans and professional learning plans. 

    E-portfolios of evidence are increasingly used to assess student, teacher and leader performance. However, Leaders of Learning need to be able to spend time examining how best to quality assure the data and evidence used to make claims about performance improvement.    

     Attendance is recommended at all three sessions:

    Session 1:  Monday 27 May 2019 3:00pm to 6:00pm

    Session 2:  Monday 9 September 2019 3:00pm to 6:00pm

    Session 3:  Thursday 31 October 2019 3:00pm to 6:00pm
