This workshop tells the Australian story of increasing workload and accountabilities brought by the changing focus on instructional leadership. In Queensland this has driven a push to rethink how we value and remunerate 21st century school leaders.  This workshop examines current research relating to increasing Principal workload and changing roles and tells the story of a unique, ongoing state-wide action to measure and recognise these.

Our pitch:

There is no point to being the richest person in the graveyard, however, setting the remuneration and conditions of school leaders at the right level makes all the difference in attracting and retaining school leaders. We want to share Queensland’s story of a process over two years to develop the rationale for a new salary system that recognises the dramatic changes in school leadership over that time.
