It is no secret that external frameworks and tools can sometimes be an imposition on schools and school leaders.  In Queensland, Australia, principals have successfully used Annual Teacher Performance Reviews (ATPR) and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) to develop the practice of teachers across diverse schools and locations.  This workshop unpacks how principals have contextualised these processes to improve teacher capacity across the full range of experience and capabilities.

Our pitch:

The true power of school leadership lies in unlocking the potential of yourself and the staff of the school you lead. Systems impose their idea of the best way to achieve this and principals adapt and adopt practices so that they actually work. Real life examples provide opportunities to enhance success.
