Overview

Growing Great Leaders™ offers research-based professional development with direct relevance to your own leadership and school development. Strengthen your practice by learning key leadership skills, and by considering their application to your current leadership challenges. Growing Great Leaders™ turns the research evidence into easily digestible learning experiences for leaders who want both the theoretical base and the practical application of research. The programme offers:

  • Research-based professional development with direct relevance to participants’ own leadership and the development of their organisation.
  • Problem solving opportunities contextualised to each participant’s role and organisation.
  • High quality course materials that include templates you can use later at your school/centre, selected readings and examples of useful artefacts to support your leadership work. You will also receive a high quality Growing Great Leaders™ folder of course materials that you will want to retain as a record of what you have learnt.

We encourage three or more people to attend from each enrolling organisation. Feedback from our workshops suggests that the learning is most valuable and has the greatest impact, when a team of three or more from a school attend together. A 10% discount applies.

Course Content

Growing Great Leaders™ Level 1 covers six modules. Each module is aligned to the Student-centred Leadership model and is designed to provide both theoretical and practical application for the educational context.

MODULE 1: Student-centred Leadership

This module is the backbone to the course which gives an introduction to the research and the Student-centred Leadership model. You will learn about the dimensions and capabilities and understand the link between these and their power to improve student outcomes.

MODULE 2: Building Relational Trust

Students make more progress in high trust than in low trust schools. We introduce you to the research that supports this claim, tease out what relational trust is in practice and how it is developed through the day-to-day interactions you have with students, staff, parents and the wider community. Without trust, we argue, school improvement is unlikely to be sustained.

MODULE 3: Establishing Goals and Expectations

This module covers the basics of goal setting theory and presents you with the opportunity to analyse the quality of your goals and how well you communicate and embed them into your school’s planning. You will have the opportunity to review and critique your school’s approach to goal setting and begin to develop plans for enhancing this.

MODULE 4: Resourcing Strategically

This module will help you to analyse your effectiveness at embedding your goals into the structures of the school. The module highlights the role systems and procedures play as you work with others to achieve your school’s priority goals. You will be supported as you review how well you use your strategic resources; personnel, time, money and material resources to maximise student outcomes.

MODULE 5: Solving Complex Problems

If you feel like you are constantly solving the same problems or need to be more effective at solving the complex problems you are encountering, this module is for you. We explain and illustrate a model of problem solving that will help you overcome the complex challenges that confront you, build the trust of your team and improve the achievement of your school.

MODULE 6: Ensuring Quality Teaching

Module 6 challenges you to think about the way your beliefs, and those of your team influence student outcomes. A series of practical tools will scaffold ongoing work in your own school to enhance the quality of student outcomes in your school.
