Our funded school initiatives
The formal Second in Charge (2IC) program increases leadership capacity and the effective implementation of faculty initiatives and programs. All executive staff have a 2IC who is selected through a merit selection process. Annual plans and targets are developed for each 2IC in consultation with senior executive and executive staff.
Impact and achievements
- This arrangement increases leadership capacity and effective implementation of faculty programs.
- Administrative load is shared allowing each person to have a greater focus on curriculum development and professional learning.
- Strong support for the leadership team plus good governance contributes to low teacher turnover(approximately 3% per annum) and strong community engagement with up to 60 parents at monthly school council meetings
- Staff ready to fill in across the system to support system leadership density.
