We invite you to attend the Annual International Seminar for Educational Leaders. Strengthen your own leadership through a week of quality professional development that provides both the theoretical base and the practical application of international educational leadership research.
Our seminar is based on the model of student-centred leadership developed in the Best Evidence Synthesis School Leadership and Student Outcomes: Identifying What Works and Why (Robinson, Hohepa & Lloyd, 2009) which examines the links between leadership and student outcomes. This model is now fully described in Viviane Robinson’s book, Student-Centered Leadership (Robinson, 2011). This week-long experience delivered to a small group of approximately 40 will bring the theory and practice together for participants.

The three key components of the seminar include:
Growing Great Leaders™
Modules will come from our Level 1 & 2 courses - Student-centered Leadership; Setting Goals and Expectations; Complex Problem Solving; Leading Teacher Learning and Development.
This is a one day course that introduces the theory and practice of this approach showing participants how to build trust in teams and with individuals, while tackling the tough issues associated with the work of school and teacher performance and improvement.
We develop the key concepts discussed in the Growing Great Leaders™ modules during two days in local schools. In the final session of the seminar we facilitate a conversation about your observations in the schools `and the theory you have been exposed to, in order to get to the ‘so what’ factor i.e. what difference will this make to your practice?
