Effective Leaders, Successful Schools

Effective Leaders, Successful Schools is a collaborative professional partnership, the aim of which is to improve the quality of leadership and management in schools.

The approach taken by our team is underpinned by neutral, non-judgement values.  We seek to build professional capacity and develop leadership talent by extending the pool of expertise and resources in the region. 

The key element of the partnership are the Stimulus Days.  These provide an opportunity to be invigorated through discussion of think-pieces, exploring key themes and forming a strong, supportive peer network. 

Led by facilitators, participants learn with and through their peers in a local cluster.  The facilitators are non-judgemental and neutral; they help to guide and shape the focus, as well as reflect the group's needs and local context.

In addition, Online Collaborations give participants the opportunity to hear from and learn with experts / specialist colleagues utilising an online collaborative space.  Participants will:

  • Engage in material presented by the expert / specialist;
  • Interact and connect with colleagues during the virtual collaboration;
  • Participate in extensive dialogue and knowledge exchange.

Key Outcomes
